I have setup printers on all terminal servers. So now all staff can see all printers.Business wants to change  this so that depending on groups the only the particular set of printers should be visble.
So do I remove the printers from the terminal server and put a TS startup script of each user so that printers or mapped from the print server.
Or can I hide the printers on the Terminal server depending on the group.

Create a logon script for each group's GPO that installs network printer drivers

I think if you just create security groups, you can use those to secure the printers.  Even though the printers are installed on the TS, users will only be able to see those ones they have rights to see.

So, on the properties of each printer, go to the security tab, remove the EVERYONE group and then add the appropriate user group.  They only need "print" access to the printer.
