Printing - how do you do it?
I was just wondering how other people map network printers on a PC room basis (rather than user basis)?
We've been using vbscript logon/logoff scripts which look at the name of the PC to determine which room it in and then maps to the printer in the room, as sets it as the default. The printers are network printers and there is a shared printer setup for each printer on the server.
But I noticed that MS describes another method for deploying printers on a compuer basis, whereby a printer deployment exe is placed into the startup script of a GPO and a printer management app is used on the server to setup groups of computers. The book I was looking at was for Windows 2008 R2, but I understand that this method was introduced in Windows 2003.
What method are people using at their College/School? And how well does it work?
