I need to install multiple network printers using AD or a startup batch file.

Right now my script looks like this:

cscript %systemroot%\system32\prnmngr.vbs -ac -p "\\Win2003FS-NJ\Brother9420"
cscript %systemroot%\system32\prnmngr.vbs -ac -p "\\Win2003FS-NJ\HP5850"
cscript %systemroot%\system32\prnmngr.vbs -ac -p "\\Win2003FS-NJ\HP2200-Back"
cscript %systemroot%\system32\prnmngr.vbs -ac -p "\\Win2003FS-NJ\HP2200-Front"
cscript %systemroot%\system32\prnmngr.vbs -ac -p "\\Win2003FS-NJ\HP4240-Inv"
cscript %systemroot%\system32\prnmngr.vbs -ac -p "\\Win2003FS-NJ\HP4240-Front"

There are like 10 more printers for some people & doing it this way the script takes forever to print. I would rather be able to do this through AD but I wouldn't mind a script that would do the printer additions faster.

Thanks in advance!
