Hi,

We have a new Printer Server and I'd like to know, is the following possible:

Create a script that will look at the network printers currently mapped on a PC and map to another printer based on what it finds?

For instance:

Computer1 has \\printserverold\printer1 mapped.

Can a script run at logon that will say:  

"Right, I've found \\printserverold\printer1 so remove this and map \\printerservernew\printer1

Crucially, the printer share names are the same on both the new and old Printer Servers.

Hopefully I've explained ok!  

Thanks

use loginscript, vbs and then

set objN = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")

EnumPrinterConnections
RemovePrinterConnection

objN.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\server\printer"
