I was unsuccesful migrating network printers using Print manager. It only migrated the print driver not the network printer itself.

Is it possible to migrate network printers from W2K to W2K8 x64 O/S?

If yes, what tool is required to do this?

Thanks in advance

    Also, the migrated printer driver is x84 bit, and having tough time finding the .INF. W2K8 is x64 O/S not sure if the migrated driver would work on W2K8?
