Pushing changes in settings from a 2008 R2 print server

I want to change the finishing settings from simplex to duplex on our print servers.  Where do I make this change?  On the print server, click properties for the printer, general tab, preferences, finishing, print style. OR   On the print server, click properties for the printer, advanced tab, printing defaults, finishing, print style.

Once this change is made how/when does it propagate to the users?  Can it be forced?

Running 2008 R2

Use the second method, Advanced Tab -> Printing Defaults.

When the users re-connect to the printer it should auto-propogate the settings.

I have updated duplex, coalate, color settings this way in our environment with great success.

I tried it this way and printed and did a reboot, the settings did not change.

That is the correct way to force settings override.  Are these domain users or workgroup users?

Mattvmotas ,

My bad.  I should not test this with a domain admin account. ;-))  Regular user account worked as you said.

Thanks!

That was going to be my next comment :)

Domain Admins can override the settings.
