Networking Printing: Physically Moving Networked Printers

What to do when your department is planning a printer move.

Moving networked printers, even a short distance within the same office, requires assistance from the Technology Help Desk and possibly EO Johnson. 

  • Create a ticket for the Technology Help Desk. We need to know:
    • Printer name (ex. ADMIN_410_MFD_1)
    • New printer location
    • Department contact person  

  • Please schedule accordingly and allow adequate time for network modifications to be made.
    • Printer moves are not a same-day event and at least one week's notice is recommended.
    • The tech assigned to the printer move will coordinate with EO Johnson if they are needed.

  • Please note: Changing the room in which a printer is located will result in the printer being renamed and as a result every user of that printer will need to reinstall it.
