Windows 2000 Adv to Windows 2003 Ent Print Migration

I am migrating a number of printer resources from a Windows 2000 Adv cluster
to a Windows 2003 Ent cluster. I have backed up the 2000 printer
configuration using print migrator 3.1 but when I try to restore it to the
Windows 2003 cluster it only restores the drivers and not the shares. I have
put the print cluster name in the target box but to no avail, what am I doing
wrong. Thanks in advance as it will save me hours from recreating printers !!

You might try asking in a Windows administration newsgroup instead of a .NET
C++ programming newsgroup. You're a lot more likely to get a helpful
answer.
