    Server 2008 - Turning UAC prompt off for users when mapping netwk printers?

    Goodness this is mashing my swede a bit...

    Trying to get as per the title working. Discovered I need the following policies setting:

    Computer Policies -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies / Security Options -> User Account Control -> User Account Control: Detect application installations and prompt for elevation: Disabled

    Administrative Templates- -> Printers -> Point and Print Restrictions: Enabled
    Users can only point and print to these servers: Disabled
    Users can only point and print to machines in their forest: Disabled
    Security Prompts: When installing drivers for a new connection: Do not show warning or elevation Prompt
    When updating drivers for an existing connection: Do not show warning or elevation prompt
    Setting applies to: Vista and later

    Administrative Templates -> Driver Installation
    Allow non-administrators to install drivers for these classes: Enabled
    {4d36e979-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
    {4658ee7e-f050-11d1-b6bd-00c04fa372a7}

    Trouble is, most of those settings are just plain not there in GP in 2k8! Anyone know the update I need to get them? Tried looking but my Google-fu isn't up to it...

    Thanks for any assistance.

    Solved it! Good old cuppa + Google sesh combo.

    RSAT tools from a Win7 machine did it for me. Read matey's awesome if kinda long-winded article HERE.
