Migration of up to 1200 Printers Windows Server 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody, i could use a little help here. Maybe you have an idea how to get this one working.

    I've got a printserver here with up to 1200 printers installed and i have to copy all of these printers, drivers, ports and shares to another server (a citrix related printserver W2k8 R2 as well). I tried to do this via printbrm.exe but the problem is, that the printbrm.exe supports only up to 600 printers.

    Out of the number of printers to migrate you can see why i'm not very motivated to do this manually.

    So, like i said, i could use a little help.

    Is there a way to migrate just a part of a printserver using the printbrm.exe? Or is there a script of some kind to do the job?

    I'm not used to script such things and i have to complete this task asap. That's why i'm asking. I'm really desperate about this one.

    Thanks in advance
