How to move printers from a Windows server to another server

Recently, one of our printer servers experienced some problems and we need to move all 50 printers to another printer server. Fortunately, Microsoft provides a print migration tool called Print Migrator. With the Print Migrator, you can backup and restore printers from a Windows server to another. It supports Windows 2000, Windows NT; Windows Server 2003; Windows XP.

When backup the printers, Print Migrator creates a CAB file including the following data:

·         Printers

·         Printer PortTID_MONITORS

·         Print DriversTID_DRIVERS

·         Print Shares

·         Active Directory Print Objects
