How do I use Windows PowerShell on Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 to find printers published in AD DS?
Use the Get-Printer function and pipe it to the Where-Object while filtering for the published property. The simple Windows PowerShell 3.0 syntax is shown here, where ? is an alias for Where-Object.
Get-Printer -ComputerName dc1 | ? published
