  • exclude kernel mode printer drivers in printmig?

    Hi,

    I'm trying to migrate a load of printers from a 2k domain to a brand new 2k3 domain. Creating a backup with printmig 3.1 went just fine but when I try to restore the printers printmig tells me that

    "kernel mode drivers (version 2) are blocked on the target machine"

    Now I've read that I can temporarily deblock such drivers but I seem to recall that running kernel mode drivers on windows 2003 isn't such a good idea.

    Is it possible to do a partial backup/restore and exclude those drivers?

    As I know, there no option to set printer properties during the migration.
    I think that if you upgrade each drive to the latest one on the source server there wouldnt be problem (or less problems) during the migrations.
