asked on

local printer

All my users are assigned to the "user" priveldge.  I have laptop users that travel and sometimes need to install printers at home or other locations.  I do not want to make them a member of the power user group and certainly do not want to make them administrators.  

In localSecurityPolicy, I enabled; set the allow load and unload drivers.  Apparently this is not enough to allow the installation of the local printers becasue one of my users could not install his printers.

I read some more and saw that in adition to the adjustment in LSP, they have to be a member of the power user group..  I am looking for other alternatives to allow users to install local printers without elevating them inot PU group,

how can this be accomplished.??

I always thought that you had to be a member of at least the power users group to install and manage printers which I presume this is what you want them to do.  If you make them power users for there local machines, and then keep their user status on the domain.
