Script to change printer location and description on Windows 2003 server


I need a script to change printer location and description on windows 2003 server.  

Set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://OU = Finance, DC = fabrikam, DC = com")
objOU.Filter = Array("printqueue")

For Each objPrintQueue In objOU
    objPrintQueue.Put "Location" , "USA/Redmond/Finance Building"

This script does not work for us since it is for Active Directory, we need it for local server.

Thank you

Hi itamt,

You can try this script.  It worked on XP so I believe it'll run on 2K3, but I'm not sure.

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Printer",,48)
For Each objItem in colItems
    Wscript.Echo "Processing Printer: " & objItem.Name
    objItem.Description = "New Description"
    objItem.Location = "New Location"
