Renaming a redirected printer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to rename a redirected printer but so far my Internet forum searches have not helped dealing with this error:

    Rename-Printer -InputObject $printer -NewName DIYAR-PRINTER
    Rename-Printer : Access was denied to the specified resource.
    At line:1 char:1
    + Rename-Printer -InputObject $printer -NewName DIYAR-PRINTER
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : PermissionDenied: (MSFT_Printer:ROOT/StandardCimv2/MSFT_Printer) [Rename-Printer], CimEx
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : HRESULT 0x80070005,Rename-Printer

    Yes I am running the powershell in admin mode. I have tried stopping the print spooler but will not allow me to rename it.

    ANy suggestions? Can this be done?

  • You do mot have permission to rename the printer.  You must be an admin on the printers system (queue).
