A. Microsoft Print Migrator 3.0, which is available at http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/technologies/fileandprint/print/download.asp , lets you migrate printers between servers. The current version supports

  • migrating printers between different Windows versions (e.g., from Windows NT 4.0 to Windows 2000 or Windows .NET Server--Win.NET Server--2003).
  • Microsoft Cluster service.
  • options for moving LPR Ports to standard TCP/IP Port Monitor ports.

Print Migrator 3.0 can back up a machine's print configuration to a .cab file for the Win.NET Server, Windows XP, Win2K Service Pack 2 (SP2), and NT 4.0 SP6a platforms. The software can also back up file-and-print shares, but not the share content. The download includes a full command version, and you can download a separate Help file from the URL I mentioned above that explains the command version.
