Alright experts I need some advice and possibly some scripting help. I currently have around 200 machines using Novell NDS printing. We are in the process of migrating to the Microsoft IPP solution but I need help with the deployment and I really don't want to do this manually. We have a print server with Windows Server 2003 R2, and all the clients are XP. I've read that you can deploy the printers through group policy, however the with the way the OU's are setup this is an impracticle solution. I need to be able to deploy the printers dependant on location or a group. So here's the question, does anybody know a way to:
First: Delete the existing NDS printers from the machine.
Second: Deploy the new Microsoft IPP printers dependant on group or location
Third: Once the printer is deployed set the default for each particular group.
I figure a script could probably do all of this, but I am very inexperienced in scripting.
