I need to add a printer, which is not a network printer but is a shared printer that belongs to another computer on my network named (COA06), It needs to be added to all users on computer named (COA200). Both computers are on the same domain. Is it possible to do this with group policy?

Manually set up the printer on COA200 as a local printer. When it asks what the port is, create a new local port called \\coa06\PrinterShareName. Because it is a "local" printer on COA200, it will appear to all COA200 users.

If this is a once off the above solution is quick. If you need more flexability a logon script (assuming you add domain printers with logon scripts - just modify or create a new one) which checks the machine name from the local environment variable (COMPUTERNAME) and can then add the printer \\coa06\printersharename.
