I have users running XP. I have multiple printers. I have created a group policy that is supposed to redirect users to just a few specific printers. I have add read and apply but it does not happen. I also would like to make it so this group policy does not show all the printers in the domain, but just the ones I want. This is windows 2000, Can someone please help.

How are you implementing this thru group policy?

The best way to do this would be to create logon scripts to map the specific printers to the correct users.

Here is a basic article that explains creating a simple logon script:

Also, there is a good tool called the Resultant Set of Policy tool that you can use to show you what group policies are applied to help in troubleshooting group policy issues.
