    I am in the process of migrating from a Netware server to a Windows server. I have had succes migrating files and programs (relatively easy). The biggest problem I've had is moving printers. I have one set of seven printers which have printed fine under the Novell NDS protocol for many years. My first thought was to install them on the Windows server and use those queues. I've had serious problems with that ranging from slow data transfer to jobs restarting randomly to jobs not starting at all. I have also tried setting up a Linux box dedicated to managing print queues, but have had similar problems. I thought maybe it was a hardware issue, but the Novell Print queues are still working like normal. I've been dealing with this for a while and am open to any suggestions as long as they involve clearing my network of IPX. Thanks.
