Best way to add 126 printers to server
A bit of background info: We have a print server, running Server 2003 with 126 networked and shared printers installed.
My task that I've been given: Adding the 126 printers onto our new print server (Running Server 2008 R2), settings permissions and sharing. The computer manager has ruled out any sort of direct migration.
Each printer has a set IP address, Location field and they all use a HP Universal PCL6 print driver. They then have permissions set as per requirements.
My question is, what is the best way to get all 126 printers added onto the server? Or is it going to be a case of 'Add printer'... specify IP address, location, security settings all manually?
My guess is it can be done by script somehow? If so, can somebody provide an example where I can then fill it the details and run from the server?
