I want to setup a new print server and have found a utility from Microsoft to migrate the printers from one server to another. However i wanted to know if there is a way of changing the client settings globally to point at the new server without going to every machine. Any ideas

Hi SGPIT,

You can install the printer from a login script - more info here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314486/

If you have a standard name for your old printers you could have them removed by the login script too.

Cheers,
Daniel

Sorry I just noticed you posted this in the Windows 2000 zone, that link was for Windows XP. Here is a link for Windows 2000: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/189105/
