    Loacal printer being overiding by roaming profiles

    Hello All

    Is there a way of using group policy in Windows 2008 R2 server to stop roaming profiles overriding local machine. For example, In my school majority of the network pcs runs windows 7 and we also have networked printers that both teachers and students print to, from any location. In addition, some of the network pcs also have local printer attached to them for teachers to print confidential documents. During set up all the local printers are set as default printers but when teachers logon to the pcs with local printers attached, not only that all the networked printers appear on the pcs, but the printer that was originally set up to be the default printer were pushed down the list, thereby sending the printed documents all over the place.

    Any suggestions please???

    Thanks as always.

    Well, I use Group Policy Preferences to deploy printers and there is an option to set the printer as the default printer unless there is a local printer installed.
