LPR ports not migrating after using PRINTMIGR



07-09-2005, 10:30 PM
I am migrating a Windows NT 4.0 print server to a new WIN2K3 print server.
I used FIXPRNSV.EXE on the old server to update the kernel touching drivers first.
The backup and restore work fine, however when I check properties on the newly migrated
printers I am missing the LPR ports, they did not migrate.
Also I only show 2 choices in properties, Local Port and TCP/IP port - no LPR

Can anyone help with this problem.

TIA

You will need to add Print Services for Unix to get LPR ports. Any port
monitor that is not installed on the new system will need to get installed
before the migrated printers that use those ports will work.
