How to Migrate shared printers (and settings) from Server2003 to Server 2008R2 64bit
Posted on 2014-01-02
I am doing a migration of a network. There is a Server 2003 (32bit) running as a printserver. There are lots of printers shared on this server, which clients connect to.
Clients are a mix of Windows XP 32bit, Windows 7 32bit. I am planning to add some Windows 7 64 bit machines in the next week or so.
I am needing to setup a new print server on Server 2008 R2 64bit
I am however unsure how to:
A. Replicate the 32bit drivers on the Server 2008 server
B. Replicate the printer settings defined (ie tray assignmentsm water mark settings etc)f rom the Server 2003 server onto the Server 2008 R2 server
Printers are all Canon irXXXX MFC's.
Any tips on how to achieve this will be highly appreciated
