Change the LOCATION field of all printers on a print server.

Last Modified: 2015-09-17
I have a Server 2008 printer server with about 100 printers on it.  I need to change the location field on all printers to be the same thing.  

Can I powershell this?

If yes, can you let me know how?  I hate to change them all manually.
