    I don't see anything in the book about it, will be a Server 2007 feature I guess.

    That was one of the reasons I gave up with it and reverted to using a VBS script :|

    Re: windows 2003 sever r2 printer manager!

    got a quick fix till something better comes out!

    i wanted to set the mono laser printer as default for each room. so i simply put an x in front of the colour printer share name. and as it seemed to map the default printer alphabetically it worked from then on.

    thanks for the help any way.


    Cheers
    Kris

    I use the con2prt app and different logon scripts (in the "user configuration" section for the computers!) for different classrooms to assign printers here.

    Although for it to work, User Group Policy loopback processing mode must be enabled in Active Directory (Computer Config/Admin Templates/System/Group Policy)

    I use the R2 Print Management Console and wondered how we would assign two printers myself. I think it's probably something I need to look into. Someone is bound to ask...
