Hi, what you need is an old microsoft application that called printer migration tool 3.1. It isnt supported anymore but works (as long as you dont have over a few 100 printers (it stores everything as a CAB file when moving so if you have too many then the cab file grows over its maximum size and the app crashes).

thanks Krzysztof, thats what i searched.
i tried printmig but this doesn't work in this environment, i think because of missing drivers on the win 2k3 server
anyway thanks for quick reply :)
