    Logon script & Printer script question.

    I have a staff logon script and a student logon script and adult education logon scripts. This maps the drives and such, and they are different due to the three staff requiring different drives mapped. I also have a generic printer script that I want to use after the logon scripts have run.

    I dont want to integrate the printer script into the logon script as this would be harder to add global printers and would like each logon script to call the printer script at the end to assign printers.

    So ... Is there a way I can call the printer vbs script at the end of the logon script so that 1 script for printers can be used and allow me to add and edit printers by just editing the 1 printers.vbs script.

    The printer script assigns printers according to machine name and works well when integrated into the logon script, but would like it seperate.

    Many thanks

    The printer script is in the same location as the other scripts.

    Re: Logon script & Printer script question.

    Perhaps I am not reading your post correctly? Surely you would use:

    REM calls a VBS script to connect printers.
    REM this script should be ran last and should not be called by a GPO.
    Call \\UNC\printerscript.vbs

    This could then be added into the logon script, and have all three pointing to the same VBS Script.

    Hope that helps!
