Changing Deployed Printer on Server 2008R2

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
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
