Windows Server 2008 Print Migrator

I have very little luck with the Server 2008 print migrator.  I'm trying to migrate print queues from a 2003 server, and only a couple of them actually migrate.  This always seems to be the case.  Does the tool just not work very well?

When moving from 32 bit to 64 bit you will encounter many problems.  I have found ti is best to just bite the bullet and gather up all of your drivers (both 64 and 32 bit) and manually undertake the process of setting up the printers.  In order for the 64 bit to share out printers to 32 bit clients you will need to first install the printer as x64.  Then when you share it you can select additional drivers and check the box for x86, browse to the x86 drivers and you are done.

It can be tedious but I've never had problems with pushing out the printers when I have done it this way.
