Our organization has 12 locations.  I want to have network printers at each location added at logon, and make on a default.  Does anyone have a batch file or script to do this?  I plan to place the batch or script at each location and pont the group policy to use it at logon.

The scripts there are basic and will map printers and set defaults for all users who recieve the script. If you require a more advanced script, let us know.
