We have an old print server that is going to be taken offline because the hardware is starting to fail, and we now have a Print Server system running virtually. The old servers name is different than the new because of a new naming convention that has been pushed down by managment, so I would like to write a script that would add new printer that point to the new print server and remove the old printer that points to the old print server.

From your tags it appears your server is windows 2008, what are your clients? –  Zoredache Oct 7 '09 at 17:10
    
XP maybe 7 at some point. –  Grishanko Oct 12 '09 at 19:36

Since you seem to be running 2008 server you could deploy your printers with Group Policies. This may be easier then writing a script.
