How do I consolidate printers installed on two separate servers onto one?

I have two data centers hosting printers for the users assigned to each data center to use.  There are about 668 printers installed in data center A and about 786 printers installed in data center B.  I need to know an easy way, if there is one, to combine all of my printers so that everyone assigned to either data center has access to all the printers?  I'm currently using Microsoft's Print Migrator 3.1 to keep the printers installed on the 30 servers in each data center synchronized with each other.  If there's a way to just dump two CAB files onto another server and not have them overwrite each other, that would be great.

Sorry didn't see that you're already using print migrator.

Maybe my question wasn't clear enough.  Let me try this again.
I have two print servers, A & B with different sets of printers installed on each.  I'm looking for an easier solution to combine these two sets of printers so that both my servers have the same list of printers on each.  Server A has say 700 printers installed and server B has say 600 printers installed.  I want the end result of the operation to be 1300 printers on each server.

I have figured out the solution myself.  Microsoft's print migrator does not overwrite the current printer listing with what is in the cab file.  It will add to what is already installed on the server.
