How to migrate printer servers by using "printbrm" utility

            The "printbrm" tools is located in the "%windir%\system32\spool\tool". By using the printbrm tool we can export print queues, printer settings, printer ports, and language monitors; Also we can import to another printer server running a windows operating system. We can do this in a efficient way.


     To Export the printer settings.

     Printbrm -s \\<sourcecomputername> -b -f <filename>.printerExport

     To migrate or transfer the printer settings to another printer server.

     Printbrm -s \\<destinationcomputername> -r -f <filename>.printerExport
