I would like to move printers from an old 2003 print server to a new 2012 server. All HP printers and Windows 7 Pro desktops / laptops. I found a few articles online which seem to have pretty good directions (I bookmarked them and will post the links later).
However, I would also like to change about 15 of the printer's IP addresses as they are not in the same range, and are scattered themselves. I have 15 concurrent static addresses available for them. Just wondering if changing the IP will affect users. Essentially, will they need to remap them?
Also, some are named by the default HP name (seeing a lot of NPI / NDI). Same question for name changes. Will changing affect users and will they need to remap if I change a name? Some printers are in the range I'd like to use so there would be no IP change, just a name change, some will have both changed.
