Help! Need to solve a big problem with printer allocation.
We have a Windows 2008 Domain with a mix of XP Pro and Windows 7 Professional Clients. Been having a bit of an issue with printer deployment that’s just getting worse with every tactic I try – grr! I think it’s something to do with my vbs file??
We have been using a printer.vbs – which appears to run but recently after log on the only print options left for students and staff are Onenote, Fax and PDF. Network printers can then be found and added but at the next logon of that user they have gone again.
Our domain has a DC1 running Windows Server 2008 Standard 32 Bit OS and a DC2 running Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit OS. Print manager is enabled on DC1 and also 2 rooms that have exclusive Windows 7 deployed computers are allocated their printers via group policy – these machines do not appear in the vbs file.
We have 3 user OUs Admin, Staff and Student. Staff and student pick up the vbs at log on but Admin don’t and again Admin keep their deployed printers. So yet again this suggests to me that something in the vbs is screwed.
Any advice on how to sort this mess out would be very welcome.
I'm not sure this is the correct thread to post this in so if not mods my apologies and please move as you wish.
