Temporarily "lock out" other users from printer
Posted on 2006-03-29
I've got a Windows 2003 DC that's providing print services for the domain. One of my users wants to be able to "lock out" other users from the networked printer that she uses to print checks (she has to change toner and load paper). Is there any way to temporarily block other users from printing? For this to work, the solution would have to be manageable by the end user. I don't think setting print priority would help since what we really want to be able to do is to prevent other jobs from entering the queue during the time that she walks to the printer, adds the check stock and changes the toner and then walks back to her desk to start the check run.
