Changing Print Servers
Posted on 2009-12-21
Im changing print servers. I would like to do this without changing anything on the local computer. Both the old Server and new server are Windows 2003. Ive used the program printmg.exe which has imported all the printers, settings, and drivers from the old server to the new server. I know the print settings go in the NTUser.dat file on the local machine (client computers). What I dont know is if the NTUser.dat file uses the SID or just a DNS name to find its printer. The forums Ive read say were not sure, but heres a script to run to clean up the local computer. If I make the new Print server the same name as the old Print server will clients pick up the new server?
