Download Pick: PRTSRVCHG New Utility to remap Network Printers.

The folks at Ctrl-Alt-Del have a new freeware utility called PRTSRVCHG which is  a command-line utility to assist the ease of remapping network printer paths for individual clients after a print server has been migrated to a new server, with a new name. When an administrator uses the PRINTMIG utility to move printer shares from one server to another server with a new name, and printer shares are retained, the hardest task is to search the individual users list of connected printers, and remap all printers to the new server. PRTSRVCHG makes this process easier by automatically replacing the old server name with the new one when the utility is run within a user session.

Thanks so much! This could not have come at a better time! Just as I was trying to figure out how I was going to migrate all my users to the next print server.
