Changing Deployed Printer on Server 2008R2

Hi Experts,
Is there an easy way to change a printer which is installed and deployed on a Server 2008R2? I currently have a Dell printer setup and and deployed via group policy (called Printer1). That Dell printer has died and is being replaced with an HP.

I want to be able to just use the same printer name (Printer1) for the new HP, is there an easy way to just swap one printer for another using the same deployed printer name?

Thanks in advance for any help

This kind of worked, but I got it installed. Since the printer was to be named the same thing, I needed to remove the existing printer and add the new one with the same share name. There was no way that I could see to replace the drivers with new ones so I just installed new.

Since I called the new one the same as the old I did not need to change anything on the workstations, that part worked ok.

thanks for the assist.
