    GPP Printers, need some help

    Having a lot of problems with printers not mapping on login etc lately so i'm trying a different route but clearly im doing something wrong as the printer adds and deletes itself instantly.

    See the attached image, on the left is the removal process and the one on the rught is the addition(in my head item level targetting there means "if the netbios name is not t1_01 / 02 etc then delete the printer" and "if the net bios name is t1_01 / 02 etc then add the printer")

    I'm trying to avoid having roaming profile users taking printers along with them hence the addition and then removal depending on what machine they are logging in to

    To me it looks like you have an awful lot of delete printer connection GPPs. Typically I have 1 delete printer connections as the first GPP in the list, and then have all the add printers below that. Ensures that printers are wiped and then applied

    I will dig out our log off script that removes network printers which is how we cure the issue if you like?

    The one negative with this approach is the printer could download the driver before gpp removes the link which is why we use a log off script as well.
