Updating installed printer driver with driver profile settings

I have a bunch of iPrint printers already installed on 1000s of machines.
I want to add a driver profile to the printers. I can add and associated
the profile no problem. My question is, will this automatically get
pushed out to 1000s of workstations? If not, what do I do to make it get
pushed out?

Updating installed printer driver with driver profile settings

Unfortunately this will not get pushed out automatically.
But I might have some things you could try to make this happen as a side
effect. If you are running NW65SP4 on the server - if you load the NDPSM
with a /DNS switch or remove the switch the clients will get redirected to
another spot and they will automatically re-install the printer (with the
addresss or DNS name).
I wish I had a better answer for you. We will at some point.

Thanks for the response. Just to clarify, because I'm not sure I follow
you. I'm on NW65sp4a. I load NDPS with the DNS switch currently. You're
saying that if I remove the DNS switch, all these printers are going to
get automatically reinstalled because the address changed (to the
ipaddress instead of the DNS name, right?). Would this also work if I
just changed the DNS name of the manager?

Correct. If you just change the DNS name (for the switch) that should
kick off the update.
