PowerShell script for network printer automation
Posted on 2014-08-25
I have a client who currently has network printers hosted on a Windows 2008 R2 printer server. All clients connecting to these printers are Windows 7 machines.
Because all these network printers reside on same VLAN where servers are hosted, we have decided to create a new VLAN and move all network printers from the original VLAN to new VLAN. I have created a new scope on the DHCP servers, and reservations to place all network printers.
Next steps are to change IP address and name for each network printer, move the printers to a new printerserver then we would need to remap all of the printers. I am looking for a powershell script to remove the old printers from all computers in a AD site and install the new ones to all computers in same site. Other AD sites within the domain should not be affected by this change
Client OS: Windows 7
Print server OS: Windows 2008 R2
