Adding permissions on printers using powershell

I needed to add a group of users to the ACL of all our printers. As we currently have about 100 printers; I looked if I could use powershell for this.
Currently on Windows server 2008 there are no built in cmdlets to administrate printers. But I did find a useful powershell script with everything I needed.

I ended up with only executing one line of code to add the group to all the printers.

Get-printer *printserver* | add-printerpermission -user *"domaingroupname"* -AceType Allow -accessmask ManagePrinters

The script can be found here, I’m posting the google translation link as my Russian isn’t that good;-)
