Rename a networked printer...
Posted on 2010-08-26
We have recently joined our parent companies 2008 Active Directory.
We currently have a Windows Server 2000 print server sharing printers to about 50 PC users running XP.
We would like to change the naming convension of our printers i.e. from IT HP LaserJet 2430 > DC1 IT HP LaserJet 2430.
I can do this fine and it lists in Active Directory with the new name. However it breaks the current printer that is setup on a machine already.
Is there a way to rename the printer without the need to visit each machine to set the printer up again?
