    Rics printer script by OU

    I've put our 3 Terminal servers into their own OU, and added Rics script (amended for our setup) to a TS GPO to run at login for users. I've had no luck getting it to work so far I've checked group policy modelling and all seems okay, as is running the script manually.

    My question is(!!) - Has anyone else got the script running this way, or is it used for the whole network? I'm reluctant to do this as printing elsewhere is working and I'm nervous of causing more issues!

    Thanks

    Are you using a loopback poilicy for the GPO?

    Not at the moment. I did look at doing that as part of my troubleshooting, but I got sidetracked before trying it. I'm back on it first thing tomorrow so will give it a try!

    I assume you want this script only to run for your users if they are logged onto the terminal server? If you want the user part of a GPO to run when it is attached to an OU that only has a computer account, you need to use a loopback policy.

    Thanks, I'd read something on the net today about user part of policies needing to be applied to user accounts and not computer accounts. Which is how my policies had been until we got 3 terminal servers and things had to change...

    Every days a school day!

    Could you not cheat and just add the script to the all users startup folder on the terminal servers?
