Printer GPO in Server 2012

Hi all,

I am creating some GPO's for users who just received a new DC of server 2012. The printers are still on the OLD DC and the client endpoints still point to this server for printing. My question is;

How do I create a GPO that will delete the old path and replace it with the new one. The IP and names are all the same, just the pathing is different.

IE; \\OLD\.....
      \\NEW\...

Currently I have created the GPO's to "create" each new path. I am just afraid if I make a "delete" for the old IP it will kill the newly created one as well.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks,

Tom

Never mind,

I figured out that there was a priority order. Thank you for your help.

You can use Group Policy Preferences to do this.  You can specify printer to delete and add etc

Hi Taz,

Unfortunately, I do not think that this is what I was looking for. I understand that I can use the preferences, I am wondering that if I have a "delete" printer GPO and a "create" GPO for the same printer which will take precedence? Since it only uses the IP for this action and they both have the same IP. The only difference is the pathing, which we can't specify in the GPO.
