Printer Script only runs for Admin users
Ok, I'm a little confused about this. We have a vbs script that runs on the staff machines GPO under the User Configuration. So on login it wipes off any existing network printers, and adds in specific new ones. It works a treat.
Ive just made another group for staff laptops that are going on the domain, andso are in a different OU (StaffLaptops). I copied the script, changed the specifics so it would work for the laptops we have and then logged in as a teacher to gave it a go. And nothing happened. No errors, nothing in logs. Nowt. I then tried running it manually from the home directory (still logged in as a teacher) and it worked perfectly. So it isn't a problem with the script.
Confused, I logged in as an admin to run a gpupdate and the printers were therre - the script had worked! I ran the gpupdate anyway, restarted, logged in as the teacher again - nothing.
That suggestes to me that it's a permissions issue, but the teacher account obviously has permissions to access and use the printers, because it showed up when I manually ran the script. So I guess theres a permissions for actually running the script itself on the GPO. But I can't find any settings like that...

Log in as a staff user and run gpresult to find out if the policy is definately being applied to them.

Good thought! It does appear to be applying though, the GPO is StaffLaptops and the script is under the logon settings...

Are you trying to apply a a user config to a machine OU?
We have a vbs script that runs on the staff machines GPO under the User Configuration.
