Remove a Printer using the Printers Name

By | October 10, 2007

When a printer dies or is replaced and a new one installed you need a way to remove the old printer from users machines. But you don't want to do this by hand.
This script can remove a mapped printer and can be added to a logon script or run via group policy.

Remove Printers Using Print Server Name

By | January 10, 2007

Two things keep me employed 1. Stupid People and 2. Printers!
Just after Christmas we had a server go down (This was our print server).
It cause all kinds of trouble reinstalling and such… but the biggest pain
were the printers (Their were so many of them). With all of the Terminal servers
using printer scripts and having users who cannot change their settings cause printers
to not be removed when the printserver is gone. To fix this issue I created this script
it will remove all printers from a specified "print server" (e.g., \\PSVR\colorlaser01).
This script can be run as a login script or added to an existing printer script.
