Hi,
 I need to copy the printer driver from one server to another. How do I do it? By the way,  both servers are Windows 2008 R2 Standard.

Thanks a lot!

The process is called print server migration https://www.google.com/search?q=print+server+migration+toolkit&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-US:IE-Address&ie=&oe=&gws_rd=ssl shows there are HowTos from Microsoft.

But I just need one printer driver instead of migrating the whole printer server.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Will the IP address associated to the printer be migrated too? I don't what that happen.

No it won't. Please read http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc722360.aspx#BKMK_winui ->simply open printmanagement.msc

I exported the printers from 2003 Rs 64bit server and the server I will need to import to is 2003 R2 32bit. ( sorry, two servers are not exactly the same). I didn't see there is a choice to import on this 2003 r2 32bit server.

Ok, try it this way: open printmanagement.msc on 2003 Rs 64. Export. From there, connect to 2003 R2 32 and select import - what happens?
