in PDFCreator Server, we changed the way printers and queues are managed.
Since the printers are rather static, we included them in the queue management. At the moment PDFCreator Server 2.0.1 will always add new printers if you click the add printer button. Therefore the software does not allow you to add an existing printer. Per default, printers created in the print management will be assigned with an existing queue. You should be able to locate the printers in the PDFCreator Server UI after restarting service and UI. Of course, we will forward this behavior to the dev team.
There are two possible workarounds:
Manually delete the printers from your print management and add them in the PDFCreator Server UI
Manually assign the printers to the correct queue with regedit.
You can find the Printer Mappings here:
The Queues are here:
To assign a printer to another queue, you have to change the
ProfileGuid value to match the ID of the profile the printer should use.
Example: My Printer Server2 is assigned to my PDFCreator Server queue but It should be assigned to my PDFCreator Server 2 queue.
Step 1: Look up which guid was assigned to my PDFCreator Server 2 queue:

Step 2: Paste the guid into the registry key for Server2:

Step 3: Close the registry editor, restart the PDFCreator Server Service and the PDFCreator Server GUI.
Step 4: Make sure the printers were successfully assigned:
