Networked Printers Keep Disaperaing from Users
Posted on 2004-10-20
Hi.. We have a Windows 2000 server and xp workstations. We all logon to the server using unique usernames. I have setup 2 networked printers. These are installed onto the server and shared out from there as a resource.
Now here comes the problem.. What is the right proceduce to follow so that the users have these printers. The only way I know is to go into each user (or get them to to it) and go START, PRINTERS and FAXES, ADD NETWORK PRINTER, find in directory etc..
The main problem with that is when you log off and log back in again you might have lost one of the printers. So basically what i'm tring to say (you can tell this is my first post can't you!) is added network printers don't stay put. And you have to add them again.
Now am I making that really hard or is there an easier way?
I don't know if installed networked printers are part of a users profile?
We have roaming profiles turned on.. just in case that's important.
