Unable to locate Print Management utility on SBS 2011

I am configuring a SBS 2011 server and need to add Standard TCP/IP printer ports but can't locate the utility on the server. I have Googled this but can't find an answer. It is found on SBS 2008 under Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools\Print Management. It apparently has been moved.

    Print management is not on SBS 2008 or SBS 2011 by default, but can be added to both. So no, it hasn't been moved in 2011.

    Open server manager, add roles, add the print server role, and you'll get the print management tool installed along with it.
