    Gpmc & default printers

    Having a problem deploying printers using group policy where the one you are setting to default in the policy isn't actually been set as default either the local PDF printer is or the colour printer not the black printer.

    I have made sure there is no tick in the box about of there is a local one present. Also making sure I have set one to default.

    Any ideas?

    +1 for using group policy preferences. if using XP ensure you have CSE installed on your clients first.
