    Network Rebuild Help Please

    Hello everyone, hope you can help me with this one!

    I have recently removed third part network management software from a school network.

    Active directory has been virtually untouched and login scripts just needed tweaked. Instead of the clients seeing the third party screen and tools I have used a mandatory user profile in combination with a group policy.

    The profile and GPO are working fine, but I am having problems with installing the printers. I have always prefered to install the printer driver locally on the PCs and connect through the printer TCP port, but when I try to do it this way and log on as a student the PC does not pick up the priinter. Its as though the mandatory profile is doing this because when log on with any other account it picks up.

    I have also tried to use a vbs script file and mapped to the file from the students login script, but I cannot get this to work. I used this line of code in my login script

    wscript /nologo "\\servername\NETLOGON\ADDPRINTERS.VBS"

    I would be really grateful for any help on this as I have spent too much time on it and it is driving me insane.

    cheers

    Ed

    Where are you putting the vbscript?
    I do the same thing as you, I put the script in all users & Startup
    However, I have found that unless you run the script 1st, as the administrator, it doesn't always work.

    Would you like a copy of the script I use to try it out?
    PM me your email addy if you want!

    Run the script as a start up script as well. This will load the drivers as system.

    Ok, cheers for the help. I will try the script in startup.

    Can you help me with another question. Once the mandatory profile is set up and in use, what is the best way of maintaining it? For example adding software etc. At the moment I am deleting the profile folder on the server, making changes on a client PC when logged in as the man profile user account then copying the profile back to the server again and renaming the .dat to .man.

    ta again
