Migrating from 10.1 Pro to 2016 Automation Follow
I've inherited a setup with three zebra-style printers that was set up on a single XP machine with BarTender Pro 10.1
After speaking with a reseller about how to upgrade I've found out this is an old version and they've recommended going to 2016 Automation, this will be on Windows 10 clients and Server 2008 R2.
I have read the manual but I have a couple of questions someone may be able to help with:
- We currently have a network share filled with .BTW files. Automation's central database sounds much better, can we import these existing flat-file labels into it?
- In the server directory setup is there any need for any/all of these to be accessible to clients?
- How exactly do the server and client Service Accounts work with regards to permissions? It looks like the server could do with a special user account for security compartmentalization but the server software looks like it supports AD user permissions for the connecting users, so can I just have the clients as Local System for their Service Accounts?
