set default printer on workstation for all user windows 7
Posted on 2011-09-09
I have setup a print server based on Windows 2008, on the print management I added all drivers and printers and shared all necessary printers. did a final test from the print server everything up to here was successful. Then I installed the shared printer on windows 7 enterprise as administrator by performing the following command \\printservername and then installed the printer. as Administrator I did a test page again there was no problem. then I issued the following command so that when user login into the workstation windows 7 they will have a default printer.
here is the command " ntprint /setdefault name=printername. but unfortunately when they user login there is no default printer. the problem I am dealing with students if every one of them have to install a printer will be a headache for the IT. and by the way existing or new user does not have a default printer. I looked everywhere for a solution but one give me a right one.
