recommended maximum number of print queues



I am looking at upgrading three print servers running Windows 2000 Adv
Server to Windows 2003. They each carry about 50 print queues. I am hoping to
run 150 print queues in one single box running Windows 2003 print server.
What is the maximum number recommended?

This depends on the capacity of the system, the type and number of client
machines, the speed of the printer, your network topology, and the types of
jobs printed.. 150 print queue is normally not an issue.
