Hi Guys ,
This post is about automating the task to deploy printers on print servers . We are usually faced with this task often and specially if you are working with SAP team where printers are controlled by SAP, or you have a huge site where printers are deployed often to print servers .We had a requirement recently to deploy 1000 printers which were controlled by SAP .
So if we try to deploy 1000 printers manually it will take a month , so I wrote this Power Shell script to automate the task.
The function of the script:
1. You need to have all the information about the printers which you can fill in this excel file and name it printers.csv :
2. Once done run the following PowerShell script to add the printers to the print server .
3. The script will first ping the printer and see if its online and then add the printers with the details mentioned in the excel.
4. This script will reduce man-hours needed to accomplish this task .
If you have any more questions regarding this please let me know .
It appears that I am having issues with the script, because it is stating the the device already exists… what would be causing that issue?
