  • Dear Customer,

     

    Thank you for your post.

     

    Based on my research, for printer migration from NT4 to Windows 2000 system we can use a tool named “Printer Migrator” utility from W2K Resource Kit.
    Detail steps please refer to the article below:

    How to migrate a printer server configuration between Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000 computers with the Printer Migrator 2000 Tool
    <http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315983/en-us>

    The latest version can be obtained in the below link:

    However, it’s not recommended because the kernel architecture differs a lot from NT4 to W2K.Even we can use the tool to migrate the registry and driver, it is NOT guaranteed that the driver will work on the Windows 2000 system. The recommended is to test and install the printer driver specific for W2K system.

     

    Hope the above information helps. If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know. I am happy to be of assistance.

     

    Sincerely,

  • Because you are sharing the printer through the Server 2000, so the client actually are connecting \\server2000_name\printer_name, if you are moving them to Server 2003, except that you could use the same server name in win2003, otherwise, you may have to try to re-configure all the printer in client side by changing from \\server2000_name\printer_name into \\server2003_name\printer_name

  •  

    Or you install all printers driver to new Windows 2003 server and add use login to delete and add print queue for all clients:-

     

    E.g.

     

    Delete print queue:-

    rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /dn /n \\w2000\printer1

     

    Add print queue:-

    rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /n \\w2003\printer1

    I just wanted to say hi, and to see how things are going. I haven't heard back from you yet and I was wondering if there are any updates on the service request.
