Hello, I have to migrate about 50 printers to a new 2012 server.  The problems is that the 2102 is 64 bit and the old print server is 32 so they wont transfer.  Does anyone know of a utility I can use to update print drivers automatically without much user interaction.  I really don't want to update all these printers manually.

Thanks

Depending on the provider of the printer I will do a silent installation process using a script at logon through GPO.

Please read here, with this you should be all set

I was looking for more of a utility that can update the drivers but I think this is a great start!!
Will this work on a 2003 Server?

for sure will work for Windows 2003 and above. There are utilities from Symantec, Microsoft and IBM that for 50 workstation probably will cost a lot of money. There is although a solution web based, called www.tanium.com that is for a large number of workstations but for a network your size you may get it for free. Let me know and I can put you in touch with them.
