I'm a network administrator of a 300+  node school network with around 800 users. We are moving  away from generic usernames and moving to towards giving each student their own username to logon with. Now how can we configure that they have the approriate printer installed  to their profile when they logon and they will be logging on at different locations and computers. This is a windows 2003 network running in mixed mode running some nt 4 boxes. We dont want the students to have to install the printer manually everytime they log on at a different computer. What can we do, is their a program we can download or is their something built in windows 2003 , maybe group policy.

Thanks for any input :)

Hi TerenceC,

I'd suggest that you use login scripts to automatically populate the printers for the users.
