I recently started new job and one of my tasks is to look into all systems and ensure they are properly configured and running at optimal settings.
One of the issues I run into is the print server. Apparently my predecessor has set up the print server by simply installing networked printers onto the Server 2008R2 VM and sharing them over network. The actual role of 'Print server' has not been enabled.
So my first task would be to enable the appropriate role on the server. My question is what will happen with the printers already configured in the system. Will they be seamlessly 'acquired' by the new role or can I expect some delay or downtime longer than 15min?
I never came across a situation like this before, and there is nothing on the net hinting on possible problems.
Thanks for help.
