Once you are ready to go live, you may want to revoke some of the changes that was made made as part of the Implementation setup on the Settings page:
- Check Allow users to add printers via Printix Client.
- Check Convert print queues. Remember you can control this per network. You can also test conversion of print queues on a single computer.
At conversion the port settings are modified to use an Internet Port and allow print via Printix.
- Network printers are converted if they are setup with a Standard TCP/IP Port or WSD Port.
- Shared network printers are converted.
Example: Reception on PrintServer becomes Reception ASD, ASD Reception, or Reception depending on the choice of Print queue naming.
- Locally connected printers (USB) are not converted.
- No printers are converted on servers.
Additional functionality implementation
- Enable print later
- Enable print anywhere
- Enable mobile print
- Anywhere documents can be released only to printers that has a print queue with Via the cloud checked.
- Enable third party Pull Printing
Remove print server
Before removing the print server, you should verify that the print server’s shared printers can be paused without users complaining. You should also verify that the server does not have additional roles, such as Domain Controller, File Server, etc.
Take the server offline. Unplug the network cable and leave it that way for a week or so: if nobody cries it’s safe to decommission the print server.
