Strange printer issue; is our setup OK?
We use Windows Server 2008's Print Management to deploy printers via GP (targets computers, not users). We then noticed that these printers were available as students moved around different computer rooms, so we used a log-off script to remove all printers. This has been working fine but somehow prints are going to the wrong printer sometimes.
I assumed the printer wasn't being removed but we have caught a few students doing this (accidentally) before they logged off and they have the correct printer installed and it worked fine after that. So it seems the issue disappears by the time I turn up without anything actually changing.
Printers use IPs reserved in DHCP so they cannot be using the same IP address. The issue has happened when printing from different software (MS Office, IE, Photoshop, Music Software). I've tried logging a student in and then not logging off and log on somewhere else but again the correct printer is listed and it works.
Has anyone else had this issue? Is there another way to provide access to printers that I can try which may help the issue. I would have thought I was doing it the best way but then that doesn't remove the settings, only applies them!
