  1. Migrating Windows Print Server


    Hello,We are on a Windows Domain environment. We plan on removing our old print server and installing a new one with same printer drives but new printer shared names.I am having issues on the test phase of removing old network printers and installing new shared printers. Our environment has a combination of printers installed with a .vbs script objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection, manual installs by browsing to the printer network path and double clicking on printers, and some with using printui.exe /ga /q /n"\\server\printer".From the research I have gathered, the VBS and manual installs a

  2. Migrate windows 2003 print server to 2016 print server

    Hi,

    We are trying to migrate the current windows 2003 print server in cluster to windows 2016 r2 high availability. My ask here is,

    1. Is it possible to migrate print service role from 2003 to 2016 directly or should I migrate from 2003 to 2012 and then migrate to 2016?

    2. Is there any documentation to migrate print server cluster from 2003 to 2012 or 2016?

    Thanks

    Basic print server

    yes, its linux, itl work with any os and any printer.

    GRANTED you might have to make sure you are useing a router with the proper hardware to be able to connect to the printer, or some kind of gobetween, like my router does not have USB...

    not real sure about DD-WRT's print server capibilitys but openWRT definatly has a package for that

    cups[linux style print server]
    p910nd[i dont know style print server, says something about non-spooling whatever that is.]
    samba-server[windows style print server]
    kmod-lp [driver for oldschool printers]

    Windows 10 Home Won't Print to Remote Printer


    I have three computers.
    Machine 1: Windows 10 pro, has the USB Brother HL-5040 printer
    Machine 2: Windows 10 pro, prints OK to the remote printer.
    Machine 3: Windows 10 home, Used to print, but not anymore (THIS IS THE PROBLEM).
    I’ve tried everything that I can think of, and would appreciate any suggestions.
    I did these steps on Machine 3 that did not work.

    1. Remove the printer device.
    2. Add a Printer
    3. The printer that I want isn’t listed
    4. Select a shared printer by name
    5. Browse
    6. Select the displayed Machine 1.
    7. Select the displayed Printer.
    8. Next
    9. Failure “Connect to Printer”.
    10. Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or Hostname
    11. Next
    12. Set Hostname to Machine 2, and set port name.
    13. Detecting TCP/IP Port
    14. Additional Port information required.
    15. Device Type – Standard, Brother Port Server
    16. Next
    17. Detecting the Driver Model
    18. Install The Print Driver
    19. Select Brother and Brother HL-5040
    20. Next
    21. Replace the Current Driver
    22. Printer Name (setting it to HL-5040)
    23. Next
    24. Do not share this printer
    25. Next
    26. You’ve successfully added “HL-5040”
    27. Finish
    Printing on Machine 3 puts the document in the print queue, which reports error printing.
    Printing from Machine 2 to the printer on Machine 1 works perfectly.
    All three machines are in the same HomeGroup. Machine 3 can access the shared files from Machine 1.
