I am currently writting a "universal" logon script, which detects which gorup the user is in and sets up their stuff accordingly.. unlike my old method of writting
a script for each user.
Anyways, I want to start managing the network printers now by setting the shares using this script. However the printers here are not connected to a computer, but connected via ethernet to the network...
Is there a way I can still map these printers?
I have had a look at this zero admin resource kit.. and it says its for NT4.0 so does XP/win2k3 have the means to do this? If not, can I just copy the con2prt.exe file into the netlogon folder (like I did with the ifmember.exe file, according to M$ this will work).
I have also tried stuff like:
Net Use \\IPofPrinter
Net Use \\IPofPrinter\blah
which obvously didnt work
