Migrating printer from Server 2008R2 to 20012R2: Error: 0x80070705
Posted on 2016-07-24
I am doing printer migration from our old server 2008 R2 x 64 to new server 2012R2x64 . Exported through print management to a file. All export successful.
Imported the file to the new server successfully with exception of 5 printers. Looked in event log and it says following on all these printers:
Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) failed to restore print queue Minolta C360 - GENERAL USE. The restore process will continue, skipping this queue. Error: 0x80070705.
Some KM copiers exported fine and some copiers have above error.
I made sure nothing in the print queue and no one is working today. Restarted print spooler and exported again.
Imported again with same error.
Printer driver is going from x64 to x64 Similar model of some copiers exported fine. Why would some give the message above ?
