At teh moment we currently have a dedicated server that runs a Red Hat Linux RDBMS system for our financial people. This system has been in use now for over 7 years and is starting to cause us some small problems.
What i am aiming to do is transfer this machine onto a Windows Server 2003 host that will run a new version of RedHat Enterprise with the DB system running on it.
The only real problem i can envisiage is the printing from DB to Linux then from Linux via the Windows host.
So far i have create the Linux VM and added a new serial card that i will connect the printers to.
My question is this.
Can i just add the printers via Windows and they will work fine or do i need to add the relevant COM ports, configure said COM ports, to the VM and run it that way??
If you need some more info that i have invariably missed then please ask.
