What is the best or preferred method for mapping printers on a domain?
Posted on 2008-10-27
The admin who was here prior to me mapped all 30 some printers to every user via a registry entry and not a GPO. As it turns out, he also had these printers shared on more than 13 different computers rather than using the (perfectly capable 8 core 4 gig) print server which already has all the printers installed. Here is the issue. I want to replace that registry entry with a clean one and map out the printers by department as needed via a GPO. What would you recommend to completely eliminate downtime during the swap over which would be fast and efficient?
