    We use GPP's I apply a User Policy to the computers OU as like Davep's screenshot above. I then Apply User Group Policy Loopback processing set to Merge to apply the policys to users while they are on that PC so that it changes per room.

    I use it as well here with over 35 printers in 1 policy. The way i have it i setup is at the User level. I then do a "Itemlevel as Target" (not sure what the english translation is, got a Dutch server setup here).

    I check to see if the computer the user is logging on too is part of a certain security group. That way i can give a computer multiple printers. An example below:

    I suspect that is why mine is running slow as I have not quite mastered mandatory profiles.

    I think all printers set-ups using gpp or gpo works much better with mandatory profiles - don't have them here YET! Work in progress.

    GPP seems to be working OK on my test machines this far, adds about 10-20 seconds to login times with mandatory profiles (MS sysprep methods) as far as I can tell (using HP UPD driver). Printers on a 2008 R2 VM with x86 drivers added on. We apply it as a User Policy but looking at the Computer's OU to find which printer to set as default.
