Adding Printers

Last Modified: 2010-04-18
I have 3 printers that I have installed on the system. All are network driven, and I have the drivers on my 2003 Server. I have shared them. I can load them on teh client machines, but it would appear that I have to load them for each user. This is not practicle, what am I doing wrong. I can see them in Active Directory. If I load them for one user then they do not appear on the other users. There is a group policy in force, whicxh I did not set up, but I cannot see anything in there that would be causing a problem.

Have you tried sharing the printer


Yes all printers are shared and I can use them on the client machines, its just that I cannot go and install them for all users. I cannot get the net use to work , says error 66.

you not running a norton firewall by any chance just check you firewall


The VB Scrip works , brill where do I put the file so that it loads on the client machines. Ideally I would like to have it on teh server so that I don't have to go to all the client computers.'

Drop the files you need on any domain controller's NETLOGON folder. It'll replicate to all DCs - very handy if you have multiple DCs and this will be a continuing issue.
