We have all network printers installed on a Windows Server. I want to install all of them on another Server (same OS) and unshare them. The second installation would be for failure of first server. I could just manually install each of them but I am lazy and would like to save about 45 minutes. Is there a way to just copy the printers from one server to the next?

You need printmig.exe version 3.0. It is a free download from Microsoft's web site.

I would appreciate if you could tell me how this program moves the printers over. The only thing I could do is backup the drivers from one server to the next. I was looking for a way to just move the printer over so I could just share it and be done.
