    • Hi 
      I have inputted the hostnames into the script as bottom.
      Ive opened an admistrative command prompt and ran cscript yourscript.vbs
      I see the text file remapp_printers.txt  buit the printers are not migrated
      oldprintserver = "computer01" 
      newprintserver = "computer02" 
      logfilepath = "c:\log\remapp_printers.txt" 
      Can you explain what im doing wrong?
  • Not deleting printer that were not on new print server

    • The script works great but, we only moved some of the printers to a new print server. How to not delete printer that are not on the new print server?
    • this script works great! but one small problem it only remapped 3 printers so if the users has more 3 printer connections it only remapped the first 3 printers.

    • Dear Sir,
      Since we are in procedure of migration one of our Print servers to another I was thrilled when found Your script. It works perfectly. One question though. Can YOu help me to redirect log (txt) file to some share. We will implement that script through Group policy through user logon and we would like to have log file on one centralized place so that we can check finished "migration". It would be grate if we could have those files with "usernames" in name of file, or...
      Sorry to disturb You with that "request" but it would be great to have that kind of feature implemented.
      Kind regards,
      Neven Kottnig
    • change line 16 to "<share path>\remapp_printers.txt" replace <share path> with the name of the share you are using.
      The problem with this is that if one user has the file open, other users can't write to it. You could change the file name to %username%remapp_printers.txt to have a file created per user.
