I have successfully migrated all printers to a new server(VM).
The only other issue i have is, keeping everyone's default printers and the printers they currently have in their "Devices & Printers". The names of the printers are staying the same.
I want to have these ports moved over to the new server and users never knew i migrated these printers.(Scenario: Migration is done, Old print server is shut down and new one is up, user's printers that have already been added before in "Devices & Printers" stay the same and are able to print from the printer they already had in "Devices & Printers".)
I noticed that there is an option to export printer ports in Print Management GUI. Does this apply to also keeping the same printers in the users "Devices & Printers" or is this something else?
Also, Is there a way to transfer users printer in "Devices & Printers" that are NOT set to defaults? Basically transition existing printers in "Devices & Printers" to the same ones added but essentially in the "background", they are different. The ports are pointing to the server, but i now need to point users printers back to the new printer.
How can i make this happen? It is not ideal for us to have users re-add all the printers in "Devices & Printers".
I appreciate you help.
