Have a question we are about to do a file server rollout. Now the file servers are going to be print servers. What we want to do is take a development box that has no network connection and no printers attached. It is loaded with Windows Server 2003. People here want to use printUI and create a bat so when they get to a site and build the print server all they have to do is click on the batch and it will install any and all necessary print drivers. I have the zip files for all the different printers can printUI be used?

My questions
1) There are going to be network printers, currently don't have names or ip's, does this matter?
2) If printUI. cannot be used is there a way to at least create something to get the proper inf's and print drivers over to folder so at least all the have do is point to the folder

End result is that basically they want all the print drivers to be in place on the print servers and to be able to do it with the click of a button vice adding each printer individually.

Was trying to do this in Admin studio at first but no dice.
Also I need to mention I do not have any of the physical printers, printer names, or printer ips
