Rename Printer Script RRS feed

  • Question

  • How would I create a script to run the following command on a remote computer:

    Rename-Printer -Name '(printer name)' -NewName '(New Printer Name)'

    Thank you!

    I think I figured why it won't rename from my previous post.
    The names are different in both the remote computer and the computer I'm working with. 

    Can someone help with this script?

  • You really can't without enabling remoting.

    You can try the WMI link I posted above.  That will work if you are an admin and if the remote is correctly configured.

  • In case your local computer & remote computer are joined to the same domain. You can login as domain admin & run the following command.

    Invoke-Command -ComputerName <RemoteComputerName> -ScriptBlock { Rename-Printer -Name '(printer name)' -NewName '(New Printer Name)' }

    Make sure port 5985 is listening on remote computer.
