We had an old print server on physical hardware that was out of warranty and running outr of storage space. We decided to migrate/upgrade to a new print server. I built a new 2003 R2 server and used the printmirator from microsoft to copy the settings from the original server.
This has all worked out fine. I set a few people as testers on this new server. If all goes well with the testers we will want to get all the users in this office onto the new print server.
Since the new machine has a different name than the old server I was thinking of using an alias to point anyone trying to reach the old server to the new server. I know you can do this with UNC paths etc but does anyone know if this will work with a print server?
