Download Free Citrix / Terminal Services Users Printer Session Migration Tool – PRTSRVCHG
PRTSRVCHG 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.
This utility was written to replace the command CHGPRINT.EXE formerly found in the MS Windows Resource Kit. This utility does not require a text file to translate printer paths, instead, it simply replaces the old servername with the new servername in the appropriate registry entries. This tool could be simply run from the command line at any time in a user session, or added into a logon script.
