    Deploy Default User to Machine Groups

    I saw in a thread earlier (I forget now, which one it was) that said you can send out a default user profile by putting a known good one in the netlogon folder. What I would like to do, is to be able to set which PCs pick up a certain default user profile so that the printer settings for each room can be defined, and subsequently changed remotely. Is this possible, and how???


    Cheers,

    You should use a script to set up printers. There are examples in the script section that should be easy enough for you to tailor to your needs.

    The script method is best but if you really must do it, you could always write a script that copies the 'Default User' from various folders on a network share.

    We use scripts for all our printers in the various OU's they are in.

    Yeah, scripts are th way to go. Only put stuff in the default profile which is unlikeyly to change.between computer rooms. There's only one NETLOGON share per domain.

    Agree with everyone. Script is the way to go.

    If you must have different Default User profiles on a per room basis, then I would create an OU structure which isolates the rooms, then create a GPO for each room 'OU' which has a startup script whose job it is to copy down a specify Default User profile to the PC
