Add / remove printers on existing SBS 2003 R2 network - this is probaby real basic but I need help!
Posted on 2008-11-05
My SBS networks are very steady state. But I have 1 where the 2 original network printers are 1 - being removed and another is being moved to a desktop.
ANd a new network printer is coming in.
without going to every desktop (we have local profiles, not roaming), how do I:
remove the 2 old printers from each person's list of printers
Add this new printer to each person's list of printers (I know how to add it to the server and share it, but then how does that show up on each machine. I know when setting up SBS with the wizards, you set up the printer first and then the users get the printers that exist at that point. but going forward how do you add / remove printers to each user's profile)?
ANd the 1 printer that is being connected to a desktop and shared to a couple pcs in that room. How do we keep xp from automatically adding that printer to everyone's profile because it's a shared printer on the same subnet - you know - you get that 'auto HP laserjet....' icon that was created automatically by the xp desktop.
