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.

8

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.

9

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.

10

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.

11

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) failed to restore print queue %1 because port %2 is unknown. Printbrm.exe will attempt to restore the print queue on port FILE: instead. This can occur if the backup file contains incomplete data about the port, or if the port or port settings are incompatible with the version of Windows installed on the destination computer. Recreate the affected port on the destination computer and then change the print queue to use the new port.

12

Printbrm.exe (the Printer Migration Wizard or the command-line tool) successfully installed printer queue %1 on port FILE:. No user action is required.
