ThinPrint Management Center – Documentation

Splitting up multiple Connection printers into separate Locations

64 views 0

Purpose of this SQL script

In case you specified multiple Connections using the same Location it can make sense to split this single Location into multiples – thus, a single Location per Connection. So, you can remove printer name suffixes like _p2 or share name suffixes like _s3.

Caution! Do not run this script twice on the same database.

  1. In the Management Center console, find out the database name with Extra→ Application Settings.
  2. Close the Management Center console.
  3. Open SQL Server Management Studio.
  4. Mark the database (on the left) and perform a backup with Tasks→ Back Up in the context menu.
  5. Then click New Query.
  6. Copy the following SQL script (see below) into the right input field.
  7. Click Execute.
  8. Close SQL Server Management Studio.
  9. Finished. Re-open the Management Center console.
