powershell:

Get-WindowsFeature
Install-WindowsFeature Print-Server

DNS suffix search list: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\SearchList (REG_SZ) “domain1.com,domain2.com”

Download drivers from Windows Catalog using (ugh) Internet Explorer: http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/ As far as I can tell, this only works while logged in as local admin because of a dumbly-designed “browse” function in the ActiveX control. Who knew that downloading drivers could be so difficult!

install printer driver GUI: printui /id

install printer GUI: printui /il

on remote system, while logged in as administrator, this should theoretically work:

net use \\205.215.68.138 /user:emsprint1\administrator /persistent:no
printmanagement.msc

(no, it doesn't work from an admin command prompt – WTF???)
