Script to configure printer permissions?
We need to set it so that people in a particular group can manage print jobs, delete them etc. We have allot of printers on the system. Does anyone have a script i can use. I looked on the net ans when testing one trashed the existing permissions and the others didn't work.

Honestly if you're only going to be doing it once, then sticking with the groups you've made it'd be easier just to steal a premade tool like "SetACL" and use that.
SetACL | Helge Klein | Home of SetACL
All the scripting done, just tell it what you want and where and it does it
For all the printers in printers.txt (or if you want to change it to loop a directory), Give group "printMgmt" permissions to manage docs, and print etc.
for /f %i in (printers.txt) do @SetAcl -on "\\printsvr\%i" -ot prn -actn ace -ace "n:\domain\printMgmt;p:man_documents" -ace "n:domain\printMgmt;p:print"
More examples at:
Managing Printer, Service, WMI and Share Permissions with SetACL.exe | Helge Klein | Home of SetACL
If you really want a script, you could just go miles through xcacls scripts, but seems a lot of work if it's a once only thing

Are all the printers on a single print server? If so, wouldn't the Print Operators group on the local machine do what your after or does it grant to many permissions?

I am looking at SETACL how can i use a wildcard to do it on all printers on the server please?

It wouldn't really be a wildcard, it would need to be as part of a script that loops through every printer on the server.

That will do, just saves me inputting all these printers!
