Print Migration Import Status

Updated: November 30, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

You can use the Printer Migration Wizard or the Printbrm.exe command-line tool to export print queues, printer settings, printer ports, and language monitors, and then import them on another print server that is running a Microsoft Windows operating system. Note that you cannot import files that were created using the Print Migrator 3.1 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=104715) tool.

Events

Event ID Source Message

11

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) is beginning a restore of print queues. No user action is required.

14

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) failed to create a separator file for queue %1. Error: %2. This can occur if an important Windows resource (such as the registry) is unavailable, if the Component Object Model (COM) cannot be initialized, or if Printbrn.exe cannot allocate memory. Examine the Windows error returned by this event to determine the cause.

16

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) succesfully restored print queue %1. No user action is required.

17

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) restored queue %1, but failed to restore printer driver settings. Error %2. This can occur if the driver on the destination server is newer than the driver in the migration file. Open the printer Properties dialog box on the destination computer and manually specify the appropriate printer settings.

18

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

While attempting to publish the printer to the Active Directory directory service, Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) may have failed to adjust publishing settings for %1. This can occur if Printbrm.exe cannot access Active Directory. Manually publish the printer using the printer Properties dialog box.

19

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printer queue %1 already exists on the destination computer. Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) will update the printer settings to match the settings on the source computer. No user action is required.

20

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printer queue %1 already exists on the destination computer and will not be changed because Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) was run in 'Keep Existing' mode. No user action is required.

24

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) successfully restored %1. No user action is required.

25

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) failed to restore print processor %1 while restoring print queues from a file. Error: %2. Examine the Windows error returned by this event to determine the cause.

28

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) successfully restored language monitor %1. No user action is required.

29

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) could not restore language monitor %1 while restoring print queues from a file. Check the print queue backup file and examine the Windows error returned by this event to determine the cause.

30

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

The language monitor in the backup file is for a different processor architecture than the destination computer, and Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) could not locate and install a native version of the language monitor. Source architecture: %1. Destination architecture: %2. Install a native version of the language monitor on the destination computer and then retry importing the print queues.

31

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) restored a driver for a different processor architecture than that of the destination computer. Printbrm.exe will attempt to locate and install a native version of driver %1 on destination %2. Try to print to the print queue, and if necessary, manually install a native version of the driver.

32

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) successfully installed driver %1 for the processor architecture of the destination computer. No user action is required.

33

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

The driver in the backup file is for a different processor architecture than the destination computer, and Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) could not locate and install a native version of the driver. Driver: %1. Destination architecture: %2. Error: %3. Install a native version of the driver on the destination computer and then retry importing the print queues.

34

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) successfully installed driver %1 (%2) from a cabinet (.cab) file. No user action is required.

35

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) could not restore driver %1 (%2) because it was backed up on the source computer without its binary files. Printbrm.exe could not install the driver from the local driver cabinet (.cab) file on the destination computer. Error: %3. This can occur if the user did not save the driver binary files while backing up the print queue, or when restoring a print queue on a destination computer that uses a different processor architecture than the source computer. Install the driver manually on the destination computer or back up the print queue with its binary files. Then, retry importing the print queues.

36

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) successfully installed driver %1 (%2) from files. No user action is required.

37

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) could not restore driver %1 (%2) while restoring print queues from a file. Error reported: %3. This can occur if the driver requires a file that Printbrm.exe did not back up or if the user does not have permission to install drivers on the destination computer.

39

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) failed to copy %1 to %2. Error %3 occurred while it was restoring print queues from a file. This can occur if the user does not have proper permissions on the destination computer, if the backup file is corrupted, or if the system is unstable. Retry exporting the printer queues on the source computer.

49

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) could not load .xml file %1 while restoring print queues from a file. Error: %2. This can occur if the user does not have proper permissions on the destination computer, if the backup file is corrupted, or if the system is unstable. Retry exporting the printer queues on the source computer.

52

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) successfully restored the print queue, but could not change spooler folder to %1. This path does not exist, so Printbrm.exe used the default spooler folder location (%WINDIR%\System32\Spool\Printers). This can occur if the configuration of the source computer is different from the destination computer. No user action is required unless you want to use a custom spooler folder location.

53

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) successfully restored the print queue, but could not change the location of the spooler folder. Error %1. Printbrm.exe used the default spooler folder location (%WINDIR%\System32\Spool\Printers). This can occur if the configuration of the source computer is different from the destination computer. No user action is required unless you want to use a custom spooler folder location.

54

63

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) could not restore print processor %1 because it is already installed on the destination computer. No user action is required.

64

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

While Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) was restoring a print queue from backup, the following service control function %1 on computer %2 returned error %3. This can occur if Printbrm.exe cannot locate all files for a print processor, cannot stop the print spooler or the Cluster service, or if either of these services become unresponsive during installation of the print processor. If printing fails, manually install the print processor on the destination computer and examine the Print Spooler service and/or the Cluster service.

67

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

While restoring a print queue from backup, Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) failed to stop service %1 on computer %2. Error %3. Try printing to the affected printer to determine if there is a problem.

68

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

While restoring a print queue from backup, Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) failed to start service %1 on computer %2. Error %3. Try printing to the affected printer to determine if there is a problem.

69

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) did not overwrite print processor file %1 because the file on the destination system has an identical (or newer) time stamp. No user action is required.

70

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) copied print processor file %1 to %2. No user action is required.

71

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

While restoring a print queue from backup, Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) failed to copy print processor file %1 to %2. Error %3. This can occur if Printbrm.exe cannot locate all files for a print queue, or if the Print Spooler service cannot be stopped during installation of the print processor. If printing fails, manually install the print processor on the destination computer.

76

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) failed to restore printer driver settings (%1, %2). Error %3. This can occur if the driver on the destination server is newer than the driver in the migration file. Open the printer Properties dialog box on the destination computer and manually specify the appropriate printer settings.

77

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) cannot apply new settings for printer queue %1 because port %2 that is saved in the cabinet (.cab) file does not exist on the destination server. This can occur if Printbrm.exe failed to migrate the port. Manually install the appropriate port, and then specify the appropriate printer settings or retry importing the print queue.

84

Microsoft-Windows-PrintBRM

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) reset the availability information for the print queue because the StartTime or UntilTime values were invalid. Error %1. The printer will be always available until you use the Advanced tab of the printer's Properties dialog box to specify the correct availability.
