My system is around 700 printers for 6700 users spread around 20 sites on NW 6.5.6 servers.

Currently, we run a manager and a broker at each site. This means, among other things, that I've got 20 driver stores where (at least in theory) we need to track driver versions.

I'm looking at iPrint Direct, since we don't do any auditing anyway. Due to a GW to Exchange migration, I'll have space on some cluster nodes to run iPrint in a central location. And, for the most part, we've got good bandwidth to the remote sites.

One of the constraints is that I'll need to standardize gateways on the Novell gateway. I'm thinking that this won't be a huge issue, just more work (mostly getting the paperwork done I hope).

Anyone have any experience with a migration project like this? Any "gotchas" with iPrint Direct?
