I have print server 2008R2 with 40 printers (IP).
I have Terminal server 2008R2 and 40 Users.
How I config the security per printer to get in the Terminal server some user with some printer from the print server.
I need the users get only 1 printer NOT all the printers from the print server.

    what we do is create a global security per network printer queue, e.g. print1, print2, ....print457

    add users to a specific network security group, and create a login script which net use, maps to each queue, only users in the correct group will map, all others will get access denied, crude but works.

    Thanks.... Is it is crude....

    But in we config it in local printers network we do it in "Security" tag and remove "Evreyone" and add only the users or groups they us it.... Then the users see only the printers they needs....

    We can do it in network printers?????

    Yes, that's correct, crude by been working like that for 10 years!

    With network printers, we create Printer Network Queues, rather than printing direct to the IP Printer.

    So add the network printer to the server, and share it.

    Accepted Solution


    But we have 5 Terminal server then I going to install 50 printers to 5 servers?

    I think I do some script....

    Configure one Terminal Server or another server as  a print server, and create the queues on that server.

    and net use and map to the print server.

    You only need to create the printer queues once, on one server.
