A have Veritas backup 9.1

I did a back up from an old Windows  2003 standard server but this server doesn't work anymore.

I built a new Windows 2003 standard server, a want to restore all the printers from my tape backup (data from the old server) on the new one. Which folders i have to pickup, what i have to do, to make sure to restore the printers ?

You will need to restore the system state along with any driver files required for those printers.

I'm afraid it's impossible. You shoud restore some registry keys, some drivers, some.... It will be easier to install those printers from scratch.

I have a customer with 170 printers on a print server some with finishers, staplers extra trays I certainly wouldn't want to set them all up again after a server crash.
