Printers assigned to an OU?
Posted on 2004-11-26
I work within a school environment and am reviewing how we manage printers and locations. Currently we are using logon scripts using the Con2Prt utility:- Example
IF %Location% == ROOMD209 \\PrintServer\Printers\CON2PRT /CD \\PrintServer\ROOMD209
I am looking at placing all computers within a computer OU and then create an OU per room and assigning printers:- Example
•OU = Computers
This has been done successfully on a test run. The problem I am having is adding a printer per Room. I go in to active directory select the ou, right click and select New – Printer and I get the following message:-
(This printer cannot be published. To publish printers on windows 2000 computers, Use the Printers folder)
Am I going about this the correct way? Any Ideas will be greatly appreciated.
