IPrint Migration Tool did not bring over all the printers from Netware 6.5 sp8 to OES 2 sp3

We migrated the data with the Novell Migration Tool leaving the printers behind.  Now we have been trying to migrate the iPrint printers unsuccessfully.  Target server - 2 printers migrated and are showing in iManager and about a third (out of 65) are showing up in the web browser under 'ipp'.  Result says "migration successful".   Tried everything we can think of.  Any ideas?

- Updated iprint migration tool via rpm which also updated the migation tool
- start a new migration gui session
- removed the old job and create a new project.
- ftp'd source-server\sys\ndps\psminfo.xml to target-server//opt/novell/iprint/share
- delete any printers via console one on target server
- run the iprint migration job
successfully migrated YEAH BUDDY!

on to move target ID
