If you are renaming a print share to replace a previous shared printer
(that is no longer shared) , the spooler keeps the old share information
stored internally in case you would like to share the printer again.
Change the sharename for the first printer, then change the sharename of the
printer you are configuring to replace the first printer to the share name
you need. Then unshare the first printer.

printer share name anywhere on the network. Any ideas?
