  • Print management 2003 R2 to 2008 R2

    Hello.

    I used the print migration tool on my Win7 machine and took a backup off the print server running 2003 R2 32bit. Now when I restore it on the new 2008 R2 server it restores everything except the print queues.

    Any ideas ?

    Not supported coming from 32 bit to 64 bit ? From what I read it should be fine.

    Thanks.

    Can you specify what tool exactly are you using?
    The printer migration wizard (printbrmui.exe) is the only supported tool that works with 64 bit systems and drivers I think.
    You may need to install the 64 bit drivers on the source print server first and then try the migration again.

      I'm using the printbrmui.exe, 99% of the clients are using 32 bit os's. Do I need to install 64 bit drivers for each printer ?

        if the server OS is a 64 bit OS, you'll need to install both the x64 and x32 drivers on the server.
