Group Policies Preferences - Delete all printers connected to one printer or name

I am in the process of migrating printers and need to remove old mappings to my old cluster. In GPP is it possible to delete all printer connect to one server for example delete all printers connected to \\servA or delete all printers with a share name starting with \\servA\Print12*??

This is possible through GPO preferences, however it will delete all printers on that machine
You need to add another printers if any through same GPO under GPP
Check attached document to delete all printers on machine

The GPO need to be applied on OU containing users

GPP will work on Win Vista and above
For XP, you need to install CSE for XP on XP machines

Yes, I saw the option to delete all printer bit I was hoping to narrow this down a bit more.

OK
How many printers do you wanted to delete ?
You can GP preferences to delete those printers one by one in same GPO
Because wild card characters are not accepted to delete printers

Simplest way could be add all printers to be deleted in GPP and it will delete those printers
