    I use a print server. Deploy with Print Management console, per user and per machine sometimes. Then I use a GPO at the container level of the machines where it needs to be default. Set the default printer through computer preferences through the shared option, then use group policy loopback within the user settings of the same GPO.

    So then it deploys the printer via Printer Connections in windows settings to the relevant people or computers, then sets defaults using loopback set to merge. Works seamlessly here with papercut. Just the actual local printers that we dont bother monitoring, although again is easy to install the software.

    Got this all working back then using GPP, so my setup now is:

    Each room of PCs in a separate OU (eg ICT1)
    Separate GPO for each printer
    In the GPO, use GPP (User Configuration) to set a Shared printer

    No loopback needed. The policy merges with the user's resultant policy, giving them room specific printers but using the user context. Papercut is happy, and it works pretty well overall.

    We have to use loopback because some rooms have 2 printers, and we have to set a default. Computer settings dont have a shared print option to update the default.



    So we use a loopback, and do the default update in the user section of the same policy.
