    are you a 2k8 or above domain?

    Group Policy Preferences might be a better option. URL Removed site is infected

    Yeah... GPP doesn't really work for location-based printing on thin clients Domino.

    @FN-GM: Have you configured the 'point and print' settings via GPO and are the printer drivers installed on all your terminal servers?

    The day will come where I don't have to repost this every week: [Solution]: Map printers with logon scripts in Windows 7 & Vista without UAC prompt

    It may be a few years off though

    Oh and if you have UAC switched off get with the times and turn it back on. It solves a lot more problems than it creates.

    just one thing..

    i have had to set mine to disabled rather than enabled. If i enabled the point and print setting the script wouldnt run (not ric_'s script but my own, which is working like a charm now)

    Edit: http://www.frostbyte.com.au/Blog/tab...nter-GPPs.aspx also http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../cc753269.aspx (near to the bottom)

    To permit users to connect only to specific print servers that you trust
    In the Point and Print Restrictions dialog box, click Enabled.

    Select the Users can only point and print to these servers check box if it is not already selected.

    In the text box, type the fully qualified server names to which you want to allow users to connect. Separate each name with a semi-colon.

    In the When installing drivers for a new connection box, choose Do not show warning or elevation prompt.

    In the When updating drivers for an existing connection box, choose Show warning only.

    Click OK.

    Note
    To disable driver installation warning messages and elevation prompts on computers that are running Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, in the Point and Print Restrictions dialog box, click Disabled, and then click OK. This setting disables the enhanced printer driver installation security of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

    interesting. If i set the script to run as a login script it doesnt do it. If i run it manually it works. I have put an echo in and its 100% running on login. Any thoughts please?

    What is happening mate? Have you run RSoP to a workstation to see if the script is applying.

    I have just had a blonde moment today. There were 2 different printer scripts running side by side so some people got printers where as others didnt. It was only until tonight when i got home the penny dropped.

    I know 100% the script is running as a login script when i put an echo in it displays. But nothing happens. If the users runs the same script manually it runs perfect.

    Thanks

    If you use 2008 R2 you can use GPP with Item targeting to IP address range if Thin clients have static IP's or if you have different ip ranges for different locations.

    I've just set mine up to use GPP and used this pretty much: Tip: Use Group Policy Preferences to deploy printers to terminal server clients

    All my thin clients are using Windows Thin PC and set up in the naming format TPC-Room-xx, so for example TPC-IT3-01 and the preference targets a Terminal Session with a client name of TPC-IT3-?? (could have used TPC-IT3-* but there are only ever going to be 2 numbers after the last bit in this room so just went for ?? instead) and it just sits in the same allocate printers policy I use for the rest of the site.

    Let me know how you get on. If you stick it in startup i think it works.

    I put All of 56 printers in one Gpp, located right at the top with default domain policy. Spent hours getting all the right printers deploying to the right users dependant on location, ad group, computer name etc....

    Worked, but it spent about 55sec on all win 7 machines saying "waiting for group policy printer policies"

    Have had to ditch it and go back to a mixture of smaller gpps and scripts. . . .
    Server is 2008 but domain level 2003r2 .. Could this maybe be a factor? Also only 2gb RAM on the print server (virtual)
