I am in the process of migrating from a 2003 32 bit print server to a "multi-function" 2008 R2 64 bit print server. It will be a DC, DHCP and DNS later. (Forced consolidation) For now, the focus is printers. I used the print migration tool after I added all the 64 bit drivers, so both 32 and 64 would move. Tested the new setup from a 32 and 64 bit workstation and all is good. Now I want to seamlessy move all the users (~100) to the ~40 printers without having to touch every desktop. I am *thinking* that I can just delete the Host(A) record of the old print server and create a new Host(A) record, then put in an alias from the old to the new name. What else do I need to do in DNS? Microsoft said something about registering with the KDD or there may be some errors. Can I just delete, create, alias and go?
Am I leaving any "force update" etc. out of the procedure?
