From this link above I used the script that retrieves the print processors to a text file, that enabled me to see if any print queue has a print processor different than Winprint.
Then I ran the script below the first script to change all the print queues print processor to Winprint, and dump the result to a text file, so I did and viewed the result text file and it showed that all the print queues have their print processor changed to Winprint.
However, by chance I went to print cluster and checked some print queues and found that they have not been changed to WinPrint.
I don't know what went wrong.

Any idea ?

thanks

You need to access cluster name via persistent print service IP using cluster name.

I have checked the register for the same print queue, and the print processor shows as Winprint.
However if I open Print Management /Printers and go to the same print queue , I will see the print processor that is highlighted diffeerent than waht the registery is showing, I mean it is not Winprint, for instance it is HPZPP5K4

Can you explain your solution since you are giving C grade (which means we were WRONG)?
