Is there a way to move a network printer to a different print server without
touching the workstations that use the printer? I'm hoping there's a cool way
to do this in AD since it seemed impossible with NT4. We might have to do
this en masse soon because our current print server might need its C:
partition blown out so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Similarly, is
there a way to set up some sort of redunant print server that still keeps
users' printers up and running if the main print server goes down?
