• I tried your GPO font method and it does not work for me 🙁 Am I doing something wrong?

  • But how can one use Psexec to execute a PowerShell script on a Windows server, and inject domain username/password (eg. Create-FailoverCluster that requires permissions to create AD computer object)?

    The user invoking the PowerShell script is NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM (from an Azure DevOps automated pipeline), but need the PS1 file to run with domain credentials. I can get the username and password to the script, but seems that it is not allowed to elevate the creds.

    Any advice?

  • Thanks for the detailed article, this really helped me out! Just wanted to note that you are missing a closing curly-bracket in the copied text template. It believe it should be:

      "ticket": {
        "subject": ,
        "requester": ,
        "comment": {
          "public": "true",
        "tags": ""
  • Ignore my comment above – I’ve done another export/import using the PMC gui this time and it looks to have imported the default printer settings over. Not sure why it didn’t work using the printbrm command though.

  • Hi,
    Is this supposed to also export/import driver settings like default paper size, duplex settings etc. for each printer?
    I have almost 700 printers to migrate and after importing the printers to the new server (using the command line) it hasn’t retained the specific driver settings for each printer (e.g. printing defaults are not the same). Thanks.

  • Hi Emanuel!

    This is great! I’ll go ahead and try.

    Thank you so much!

  • Hello Dave,
    Of course it’s possible, but I don’t recommend it. Why ? Does your server have the latest drivers for your printers ? Not sure ! You risk having a brand new 2019 server with obsolete drivers, and perhaps even drivers that still work in Kernel mode (“Vade Retro Satanas” :-)) and not in User mode.

    What I recommend (of course it’s longer, but it will be clean).
    – Identification brand / models of your printers
    – Go to the site of the manufacturers and download the latest drivers for these models. Make yourself a repository for your drivers.
    – Creating the printer queues with these new drivers. Be free to do it in GUI or online command mode (script) as you prefer.

    There, you will have something clean that will work for years, and not something dirty with pans below.

    Remember: “The advisers are not payers”. Feel free to do as you want.
    Hope this help

  • Is following in the article an error?

    To directly disable the inheritance without copying the ACEs, and then remove the inherited ACEs, you could use /inheritance:d; however, this operation is a bit risky.

    Should it instead be this? /inheritance:r

    e – enables inheritance
    d – disables inheritance and copy the ACEs
    r – remove all inherited ACEs

  • Will this process also work to migrate print queues from Server 2008 to Server 2012R2 or Server 2019?

  • Hi Emanuel!

    Thank you for replying! Well, my situation is that I need to run your commands ‘outside’ the VM. Sorry for the newbie term (‘coz I’m exactly that – a newbie). Specifically, the Set-DNSClientServerAddress command. This command necessitates me to be ‘inside’ the VM so I can change it’s DNS IP address. I need to do this while I’m ‘outside’ the VM. In fact, I’m adding this line of code to a Powershell syntax that automates VM creation installed with a virtual hard drive (to also automate OS installation) plus setting up virtual network connection with a specific DNS server. The part with the DNS server that I have to specify for the VM is the tricky part for me.

  • Hi Emmanuel!

    Your codes are a godsend!

    Would it be possible for you to provide equivalent codes if we’re to apply these to virtual machines/VMs? Thank you!

  • Legend!

    I’ve set up Windows Event Forwarding (50 servers that send logs to 1 collector) and this just made my work a lot easier.

    Thanks and keep up the good work

    I used above, still it installed all MSO apps.

  • Thank you. I was thinking of how to rollback (remove) the extension, if something should go wrong or if management wants to remove it down the line. When we submit a “Change” we also need a rollback plan.

    This script works great for installing. Thank you very much for that.

  • Any way to use this same script to uninstall the extension?

  • I’m not one to leave comments but this looks awesome. I messed around with the hydration pack in it’s early start but it was just a lot of configuration. This looks like it’s easy and straight to the point!.

  • Does DFSR or a related version of that service work with Azure Directory Services?
    If so, what are the typical replication latencies like in the Azure environment – and how do they compare with a distributed AD environment?
