Migrating printers from windows server 2003 to windows server 2008
Posted on 2009-02-11
I deperately need your help..
I have tried migrating printers from Windows server 2003 to Windows Server 2008.
but it got failed badly
Here is what I did
- Installed the printer role on my new server 2008
- Exported the list of pritners using the migration tool ( I think it's name is printbrm) from my old server 2003 and saved it as xxx.printerexport
-Imported the list of printers using the migration tool wizard.
Only one priter got added and the rest of the printers did not get added but only there drivers.
this is the error message I see on all the printers that didn't get added in the event viewer
" Install the native version of the driver on the destination computer and then retry importing the print queues."
Have anyone any ideas what this error message means..
Please and thanks..
