    Cool Printer Deployment

    I've just had two new computers put in the Head and Deputy Head's offices but the printers that are attached to their accounts aren't following them to their new computers...
    I've even logged on as myself and the printers that normally follow me around haven't deployed, am I missing anything?

    Hi

    How do you deploy the printers is it through a script or gpo.

    What os is on the new machines?

    Windows xp might need the client side extension tool installed

    Windows xp might also need also need pushprinterconnections.exe run as a script at startup

    Is the machine in the correct ou?

    Are gpo's applying correctly?

    Cool

    The printers are shared units on the print server and are deployed through the "Printer Deployment" GPO as part of the 2008 Server GPO Set...
    The two new machines are running Windows 7 Professional...
    They're both in the correct OU...
    The GPOs for the printers are applied to the users who both sit in their own OUs in the SLT OU...

    Do you have the Win7 32/64 bit drivers loaded in the print server?
