Stop Network Printers From Roaming
Posted on 2005-05-02
I have searched Windows 2003 AD for a way to prevent network printers from roamming, but have been unsuccessful. We have many roaming profile users. I have installed a log-on script that maps network printers based on a user's geographic area, however, they still print to wrong printers due to their printers following them. Is there a way to prevent printers from roaming? If not, does anyone know of a script to "batch disconnect" all network printers (not one at a time like kixtart's DelPrinterConnection or Windows' rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /dn)? The later programs require you to know the name of the network printer to disconnect it. I want to delete all network printers and assign the ones I want with my log-on script.
