  • View network Printers change print servers

    Is there a way to view printers installed on a windows7 machine. I see the locally installed printers but not the networked printers that come in from our print server. We are moving our print server and I need to delete the current printers on the local machines and install the new ones from our new print server. I would really like to be able to do this via hyena so I don't have to visit each machine individually.

    I'm assuming you don't see the network printers through the Printers node under the computer. I think the network connected printers are a local connection, much like a drive mapping. But the documentation for the Win32_Printer class seems to imply that it can do this:

    See if you can run the Win32_Printer WMI class query on one of these remote computers and see if it gives you the networked printers.
