  • Locate Duplex Printers on Domain

    I am trying to export a list of printers that support duplex printing ~ without success, so far. When I do a printer export there is no option (that I can find) to show the duplex option, although I see it under properties when I look at individual printers. Is it possible to do this?

    I'm not sure where you would see this. You can see if any of the WMI classes would show it, but I did a quick look at Win32_printer and I don't see anything like that.

      Worked with this some more and came up with the following: when I right-click on Containers/OUs I get the option Query Active Directory, I then choose Select / Customize Query.

      I created a new query with the LDAP search filter:

      (&(objectCategory=printQueue)(printDuplexSupported =TRUE))

      and checked the Include subcontainers and sub-OUs in search checkbox.

      This gives me a list of all the printers that have the double-sided printing option enabled.

      I don't believe this is completely accurate as there are some printers on the list which I know don't support duplex printing, but I presume that to be human error (driver misconfigured). I think this is as close as I'm going to get.
