Depending on the scripting used, one needs to collect the printer share information.

Then I run a bat file that uses the following:

 for /F "tokens=1*" %%a in (prt.txt) do call setprtacl.cmd %%a

Which calls a .cmd file:

REM *** print-server-name area

date /t >>C:\log\log-file.log
echo. >>C:\log\log-file.log
time /t >>C:\log\log-file.log
echo. >>C:\log\log-file.log

REM *** Set owner printer to domain\prt-svr-ctrl group

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /setowner="domain\prt-svr-ctrl">>C:\log\log-file.log
 
 REM *** Add print control group

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="domain\prt-svr-ctrl"=F >>C:\log\log-file.log

REM *** Revoke section -  ***

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Revoke="Administrators" >>C:\log\log-file.log

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Revoke="Power Users" >>C:\log\log-file.log

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Revoke="Everyone" >>C:\log\log-file.log

REM  *** Add and Modify permissions section

REM *** Modify Administrators permissions from Full to print

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="Administrators"=P >>C:\log\log-file.log

REM *** Modify Power Users and Users permissions from Full to print

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="Power Users"=P >>C:\log\log-file.log
 
 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="Users"=P >>C:\log\log-file.log

 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="Print Operators"=F >>C:\log\log-file.log

REM *** Set permissions for PrintQueueOperators global group
 subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="PrintQueueOperators"=M >>C:\log\log-file.log

REM **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  **  

date /t >>C:\log\log-file.log
echo. >>C:\log\log-file.log
time /t >>C:\log\log-file.log
echo. >>C:\log\log-file.log
ren C:\log\log-file.log *.txt


For the everyone group one would do this:
subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="Everyone"=M >>C:\log\log-file.log

I do not like using the everyone group but that's me.

To modify the everyone group the way you want just run:

The batch with tokens line to call the batch with the .cmd with the line below only.

subinacl /printer \\print-server-name\%1 /Grant="Everyone"=M >>C:\log\log-file.log

The Set ACL command actually worked very well and very fast.

c:\setacl.exe -on "\\printclustername\%print%" -ot prn -actn ace -ace "n:everyone;p:man_docs"
c:\setacl.exe -on "\\printclustername\%print%" -ot prn -actn ace -ace "n:everyone;p:print"
