Printers and Roaming Profiles
We have found that staff members with roaming profiles are logging in to their own classroom PC's and are getting our printer servers defaulted to their machine. We are guessing that this is because when they log out in our IT rooms, their roaming profile is storing the printer option within their profile. We only want the printer servers to operate within the IT rooms where they are assigned by a script file on our main server.
This is an issues as some staff back in their rooms do not realise until after they have printed something which could be confidential and that it has printed off in the IT room.
Can anyone suggest a method in which we can prevent this from happening and that they only get the printer we have installed for them in their classroom?

You should just need to set your printer assignment scripts to wipe all printer connections on logon and then only add the printers associated with their current location.

The script that we use to assign the printer to a room is as follows...
IF BeginsWith(ComputerName,"RM22-") THEN
AddPrinter "\\YUCSVR2\Brother6050Server", True
Could you suggest what we would need to add in order to make sure these printers are removed, as we are somewhat vague on what to put. This would be much appreciated.

Removes all printers except USB and LPT local printers
For i = 0 to oPrinters.Count - 1 Step 2
On Error Resume Next
if Left(oPrinters.Item(i), 3) <> "lpt" And Left(oPrinters.Item(i), 3) <> "usb" then
WshNetwork.RemovePrinterConnection oPrinters.Item(i+1), true, true
else WScript.Echo "No network printers found"
