I have a 2003 32bit windows server which hosts a print server role.
I installed a new windows 2008 server R2 which i enabled the print server role.
The goal is to migrate all the print server data onto the new 2008 64bit server to include both 32 and 64 bit drivers.
I simply want to migrate the drivers/printers but not go live yet. simply stage the new print server by adding all the data from the 2003 server.
I have found a few articles on technet. They say best pratice would be to install the 64-bit drivers on the source server(32bit host) prior to running the migration. However, I need a bit of guidance with steps such as:
What exactly is migrated? Is it just the printer config? or the drivers as well?
Am i going to have to perform any manual procedures or is there a tool that makes this seamlessly?
