Automate Printer install With KIX
Posted on 2010-08-31
I've used KIX scripting as a network administrator for a long time now. Seems that with the release of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008/(R2) there have been some challenges with the following command:
Seems as though KIX used to be able to install the printer driver in the Windows XP x86 environment, and now if the Windows 7/Vista account has only "Domain User" rights, and the printer driver needs to be installed, it will prompt for admin credentials. This is ok for one or two workstations, but is a real pain if you have to deploy a new printer to an office of 50 + workstations. Anyone know of a good way around this? I'd really like to stick with the Kix script as I am familiar, but is there a better way?
One great feature with KIX is that you can deploy based on group membershipt and subnet. Any other solution offer this functionality? Thanks fellow admins!!!!!
