  • Change printer connection server name on all client

    Hi we have a domain controller running windows 2003 with print server on him. We want to separate the 2 services so we are gonna have 2 different servers: 1 DC and 1 print server on windows 2008.

    What is the faster method to the printer server name connection on all my windows xp client ?

    Thanks for your help

    Hi

    What method are you using at the moment to connect the printers?
    If you are using a script it's just a matter of changing the \\servername on the script.
    If you are not sure just post the scrip here and we'll have a look.

    Cheers

        Here is a sofisticated script that you'd need to slightly tweek to suit your environment:

        If the above script works for you, great. (I have't tested it yet)
        However I'd suggest you use logon scripts if you can or at least get the users to run the following script to add a printer connection.
        Make life a little easier for yourself.
        Code:
        Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
        
        WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\PrintServer\Printshare"
        WshNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter "\\PrintServer\Printshare"
