Print server migration (32 bit 2003 R2 to 64 bit 2012 R2)

I have a 32 bit 2003 R2 print server, I need to migrate all the printers, drivers, etc to the new 64bit 2012 R2 print server. I have the role installed on the 2012 server, What I have done/ looked into.

I ran the migration wizard from 2012 R2 and it did not work (only migrated 5 printers which is not close to what we have).

Microsoft Print Migrator 3.1, will not work due to the 64bit incompatibility. Printbrm.exe command line tool may work but I have not found any examples of how to utilize it.

Basically I am looking for a straight step-by-step process of how to do this with little administrative action as possible.

Hi Jedi,

Also I don't find the details about migrate to 64-bit Windows Server 2012 R2

More articles are about migrating from 32-bit Windows Server 2003 to 64-bit Windows Server 2008 SP1/SP2 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

There's only the overview of migrating Print and Document Services to Windows Server 2012

Hope it does a little bit help. And look forward to you reply. Any information please feel free to share with us.

Best Regards,

Mary Dong
