Relocate print server

By gdemoura ·
My print server is currently setup in my Windows NT 4.0 PDC. I would like to relocate it with all the printers in a Windows 2000 domain controller of the root domain of my forest.
There is a trust relationship between the Win NT4 domain and the Win2K forest. My users are still in my NT4 domain.

How can I do it?

As long as the 2000 system trusts the NT 4 accounts, you can reinstall the print server on the 2000 machine with no worries. users should be able to connect to the printers the same way as before. The only thing that will change is the server name.

So if in the past you asked users to type \\NT4SERVERNAME and right click on a printer and select Connect, it now becomes \\WIN@KSERVERNAME with the same process.

Good luck
