Migrate Printers Using Printbrm Utility

You can use Printbrm tool to migrate print queues, printer settings, printer ports, and language monitors from one print server to another. By default this tool is located in C:\Windows\System32\spool\tools location.

Run the following command on the current print server to export printers:

Printbrm -s \\CurrentServer -b -f PrinterSettings

Then run the following command to import printers setting onto the new server:

Printbrm -s \\NewServer -r -f PrinterSettings

Hi Santhosh,

Good Morning.

Printbrm.exe takes a long time to restore even after applying the hotfix as said in the below KB article. Looking forward for your response. For security reasons, I am not giving my corporate email ID. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2636591

The print drivers, which we are using are HP UPD PCL 5 , PCL 6 ( V5.3 )

Regards,
Ram
