I have 50 Terminal Servers that I would like to have the same set of drivers available on to allow for automatic printer mapping for the users.  I have installed all the drivers that I need on one of the servers.  Is there an easy way to copy the drivers out to all of the servers?  I have tried Microsofts Printer Migration Tool (printmig.exe) and it works fine on the local machine.  But, if I try to run a restore for the servers remotely it fails.

I was under the impression that automatic Printer Redirection in terminal services would only use the Microsoft-provided drivers in ntprint.inf. Did you create a driver substitution / mapping file on the server as described in KB article http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=239088 ?

If you did, you can simply copy that inf file to each of your terminal servers, and configure their registries to read it.

If this isn't how you got the first server working, then I'm a little confused.
