Backing up printers from PDC to BDC

By L8on ·
I have a PDC that has over 100 printers configured on it that is getting quite old. These printers are all network printers [no LPTs] and I have a couple of newer BDC's that I would like to save these configurations (from the PDC) to. This is to save myself the hassle of having to manually re-create all of the printers if the PDC happens to fail.
Does anyone know what I would need to do to save these printers and copy them to the BDC?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanx in advance. Layton

Their is an excellent utility within the newest NT resource kit called printmig I have just used it to complete the very same task as you wish to do.
you choose backup then you select target and bob's your uncle!
I double checked the settings and all is fine. 97 printers done within 2 minutes.

best of luck.
