VBS Printer script checking PC Group membership
I'm using some fairly basic vbs login scripts to map my printers in (below). (I've had to resort back to this becuase GPP has proved to be not as efective as I'd like).
Is there a way to find and check a PC's Group membership as part of the script?
Specifically I want to see if the PC is a member of a windows security group and if it is apply one setting and if it isn't a different one.
Current script for reference
rem ** Next line must not be deleted **
Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
rem ** This will delete existing printers **
On Error Resume Next
Set oPrinters = WshNetwork.EnumPrinterConnections
For i = 1 to oPrinters.Count - 1 Step 2
rem ** Setup new printer connection **
rem ** Setup default printer **

My VBS Script for students maps printers based on the OU that the PC is located in, so they only get the printer for the particular room they in at a time.
would this be any help?
And my staff one applies printers based on the users membership to the security group "staff".

It might help, possibly the staff one...
Basically I need to apply all the printer mappings to all the classroom PC's however I don't want to set a default if there is a local printer. As all the PC's with local printers are members of my papercut group they are easy to find, however they are scattered throughout the OU's

Cheers for that. It's worked great for staff however I've hit a slight issue.
I can adapt it to return the PC's DN but I can't get it to return the group membership of the PC so I can perform actions if a PC is in certain groups... and suggestions?
