    You can use Hyena's Generate Macro function for this.

    Display your computers in the right window, then do a Ctrl-a to select all of them.

    Go to Tools->Generate Macro and type in a Macro Command String of:

    exporter.exe .\export.ini domain %E%

    Enter an output file name of something like:

    c:\program files\hyena\report.bat

    Click OK and Hyena will create your batch file for you. Also, make sure to set Append=1 in the export.ini.

    Thanks for the reply.

    What you suggest works and gives me the information I need. However, it assumes that I know the workstation names of all the workstation in the Domain, and also that I will need to run the command for every workstation in turn.

    I guess I could script this up using a pre-query to generate a list of workstations and then loop through these running the printer export, however I'd be grateful if anyone can suggest a quicker method !

    Try running the command line version with the following syntax against one of these computers:

    exporter.exe .\export.ini domain computer

    See if that gives the desired output.

    Exporting Local Printers attached to workstations

    I'm trying to get a list of all the local Printers attached to workstation within in a given Domain. I've used Exporter (standalone) and within Hyena using the following .ini settings,

    ExportPrinters=1
    ExportPrinterFile=d:\printers.txt
    ExportServerPrinters=1
    ExportWorkstationPrinters=1

    ... but it only gives me the Shared Printers on Servers. It doesn't give me any Workstation info, whether the Printer is shared out or not. Can anyone help please.

    PS. I'm pretty new to System Management and am mightily impressed with Hyena so far .....
