Direct IP Conversion Detection

How to determine if printers were successfully converted to Direct IP printers

There are several methods to determine if printers were successfully converted to direct IP printers:
  • Most customers will either check the print server log to see if it is still printing documents and use the native event viewer (export to file and find print job events) to see which computer objects are still printing to the print server.
  • Use an endpoint device management product (SCCM, LanDesk, BigFix, etc) or script to check for "failed" in the c:\Windows\temp\PPP\Log\PrinterInstallerClient.log file.
