Is there a way to change users access to a networked printer via GPO's?

I was getting ready to write an email with instructions for my clientele to change their access to our networked printers. We recently changed DC's and the new DC has the printers install on it, but the users are still pointed at the old DC.

Publish new printers, then add them to GPO.

Not unless your running Vista clients other than that a logon script will work great.
Something like this:


ON ERROR RESUME NEXT
Dim WSHShell, WSHNetwork

Set WSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set WSHNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
WSHNetwork.RemovePrinterConnection "\\OLDDC\prnMainCopy" ,True,True
wscript.sleep 800
WSHNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\NEWDC\prnMainCopy"
set WSHNetwork = Nothing
wscript.quit

Iscapa, that worked! Would I just have to put that script under login scripts for the GPO of the users in question?

Yes. Just put in the upper most GPO under Logon script's for the users that need it.
