Question Need to copy printers from Sol8 box to Sol10 box-No luck so far

I need to copy the printers currently installed on a Sol8 box to a Sol10 box. I tried copying the printers.conf file from the Sol8 box and that worked until I went through the file and changed the server name to that of the Sol10 box. Another post on this forum suggested copying the entire /var/spool/lp folder but I haven't been able to try that yet. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Smilie

I suggest you dont just copy the files this way. In sol 10, you will need to install/update necessary driver for your printer(maybe you overlook that)?. And its best to set up the printer from scratch. Its not gonna take too long. You should be doing this dudeSmilie
