I have two print servers aupriprint01 & aupriprint02. I need to move  a few printer from one to another.  It will be nice if the script could prompt me from the following.

Printer name
From Server
To Server

Thanks
Cheers

Hi  Bianchi928,

You don't say what version of Windows the servers are.

Print Migrator 3.1 was included with the Resource kit for Server 2000 / 2003.  It does not work migrating to 2008 though.

Please see this article on TechNet about migrating print servers:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc722360.aspx

The article explains that you may have to do a 2-stage migration if your old print server is 2000 or older and the new one is 2008 or newer.

Hope this helps,
Daz.
