11.11 to 11.23 upgrade migrate printers with cups

I have done OS upgrades and have a great procedure for moving the printers over using HP's print manager. Unfortunately I have a server that is using cups and although it appears that I got everything moved over my lpstat does not show the printers as before. Is there a way to read the /etc/cups/printers.conf file back into the system? I can not find any documentation about this issue, even for Linux. The cups scheduler starts just fine. Thanks for the help

I re-installed the Printpro software and everything is now working. Looks like Printpro replaces some of the lp commands with it's own. Everything seems to be working now. Thanks.
