Hello together,
first: my english is not the best, but I try my best – so please forgive me 🙂

I have to Setup a new printserver (Windows Server 2016) and I have to Setup ~700 Printers. I am not able to Export the Printers from the old Server and Import to the new one.

I got a Script to manage the adding of the Printers to the Server very good, but I Need to make some additional Settings and I don't know, how to manage this.
I Need to Setup following Things with PowerShell:
1. Enable "Print after the last page was spooled"
2. Set the Devicetype of "detect automatically" to "Color"
3. Set "TrueType-Font from "Replace with Device Font" to "load into the Printer as a soft-font"

I can't find anything usefull at TechNet, Google etc. Maybe any1 here can help me.

Thanks alot guys!
