Keeping preferences from printer installed on print server
Posted on 2011-05-12
We have a kix login script that installs specific printers based on a user's location. All this does is add a network printer that is shared from a server 2003 print server. The printer is a Ricoh Affia 7501. The color printing is restricted. I've set up 2 printers on the print server. The first of which is set up to be black and white only, the second is for color use. This has worked fine in the past, but now we have a new batch of copiers which require some specific settings within the driver for the users to be able to use it, to print in color or whatnot. The problem is that when the printer gets added, it retains the default installation properties and not those which are set up on the print server. Is there a way to force these settings to be applied when installed? Or how can I apply these settings via the kix login script or other means?
