    printer script again (sorry)

    Posted this the other night just before the big 'meltdown' at fasthosts hope it wasn't yet another printer script request that did it

    I have two seperate vbs scripts at logon, one to delete networked printers and one to connect to network printers, what I really want but am too dim to do it, is one script that will delete networked printers if they exist and connect/install currently used network printers.

    Nice to be back - well done!

    could try:

    On error resume next

    'Remove's All Network Objects (Printers and Drives)

    Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
    Set oDrives = WshNetwork.EnumNetworkDrives
    Set oPrinters = WshNetwork.EnumPrinterConnections
    For i = 0 to oDrives.Count - 1 Step 2
    WshNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive oDrives.Item(i),true,true
    For i = 0 to oPrinters.Count - 1 Step 2
    WshNetwork.RemovePrinterConnection oPrinters.Item(i+1)



    'Map Printers Based On Computer OU Membership

    Set objSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")
    strName = objSysInfo.ComputerName

    arrComputerName = Split(strName, ",")
    arrOU = Split(arrComputerName(1), "=")
    strComputerOU = arrOU(1)

    Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")

    Select Case strComputerOU


    Case "OU name"
    objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\server\printername"
    objNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter "\\server\printername"

    Obviously put your OU's and printer share names in and repeat for all printers and OU's
