Backup your Print Server (with server 2008)

The handy printer migration tool you might have used in 03 has now morphed into the command line utility printbrm in server 08 (Syntax here). Pretty straightforward, simply add print services to your 08 machine and then run the following command to backup:

printbrm -s \\server_to_backup -b -f c:\PrintServerBackups\servername.printerExport

The printbrm command is located in %windir%\system32\spool\tools
