Is there a quick way to grab driver files from one printer off of the citrix metaframe server. The goal is to get a driver for a specific model and pass it along to someone else for install. Currently there is about 50 models for print support in citrix . I tried "print migrator" but it backs up ALL into a cabinet file and you have to restore ALL.

Sry, did not see anything in there about copying driver files. There must be an easier way to packup drivers by model  instead of going to the driver properties and browsing and copying all the files manually, no?

Not that I have ever found. I don't think there has ever been much of a need to move single printers. In most Citrix environments, everything is looked at from a load balancing perspective. I have all of the same printers on all of the Citrix servers in my farm just to endsure no users have problems. In terms of a regular print server, those tools are looked at in terms of migrating printers to a new server. In most cases, single printer drivers are seen as being addressed one at a time since there are usually so few of them.
