Migrating plotters to new NX version

Does anyone have a best practice method, to migrate plotters to a new version of NX?

 

Last time we went from NX8.5 to NX9, we ran into an issue that required us to start over, with the NX9 default files.  I don't recall the details, but GTAC suggested then, that you always copy the latest files from the install, and start from there.

 

That wasn't a bit deal then, we had very few setup, but now we have many plotters and printers setup as plotters, across two geographical locations.  Any tips/tricks would be great.  Initially, I think I'm going to try without changing anything, and hope for the best.

Since the new plotting interface was introduced, I didn't do anything special, just used the same plotter folder on our common server share.

I don't customize files on the clients, just the ones stored on the server share.

Using a common plot group file, nothing special.PlotGroupFile.PNGCustomer Deafults - Gateway - Plotting

That's the plan I'm going with, and hoping whatever the 8.5 to 9.0 issue we had, was a one off deal.

I don't remember when the new plotting system was introduced, but I have used the same plot group folder for NX 7.5, NX 8.5 and now with NX 10 without much changes other than adding or removing printers as they come and go.
