MS: Print Migrator

Print Migrator is a utility, which automates the backup and restore of print configuration data on print servers running Microsoft Windows NT 4, Microsoft Window 2000 and Microsoft Windows Server 2003. Print Migrator 3.1 continues full support for print servers running Microsoft Cluster Services; support for migration between different version of Windows (for example, Windows NT 4 to Windows Server 2003); and support for conversion of line printer remote (LPR) ports to the Standard TCP/IP Port Monitor on Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003. This paper is designed for systems integrators, administrators, and architects who are planning, deploying, or managing Windows Print Servers.

Sometimes you will get this error:

"WARNING: Kernel Mode drivers (version 2) are blocked on the target machine. Disable Kernel Mode driver blocking and re-run Printer Migrator"

To fix that error:

1) Open Run and type gpedit.msc
2) Open Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, Printer.
3) On the Right click on the policy labeled "Disallow installation of printers using kernel mode drivers"
4) Set it to disabled.

You may have to reboot, but you should now be able to install Kernel Mode Drivers.
