Help with printing design
Perhaps you guys can shed a light on this matter.
Currently we have about 80 printers all controlled by a couple HP4200 print servers (linux appliance). Our users are not satisfied by our current setup.
The students get a printer assigned by logon script. Its based on the hostname, if it matches it will get printer X.
There is only 1 printer in a classroom. students have acces to them and mingle with it..so problems do arise quickly.
They only have 1 printer assigned...otherwise they will print alot of pages to a printer in another classroom
We have to many printers for our school (we have 900 pc's and 3500 users)
So i am looking for a solution that creates printer stability, redundancy and some auditing tools. Further i want to get rid of the HP4200's.
We run a windows 2003 R2 domain
Any great idea's?
