we have a Server 2008 R2 Printer Cluster.
I need to update several printer drivers,if i do that the print server manager crashes.
also it is not possible to delete and update those old drivers.

what would be the best approach to solve this issue? i cannot stop the printer spooler since our users (4000) are constantly using the print server

To increase print server stability, only the print drivers that are needed should be installed.   Print drivers should be installed on the cluster print resource.  Print drivers should not be installed on the local physical nodes of the cluster unless it is required by the printer vender.

Please refer the following article for complete information regarding Print Drive update on a cluster.
