Deploying Printers/Setting Default Via Group Policy
Posted on 2011-09-23
I am the systems administrator at a junior college. We have several computer labs, all with workstations running Windows XP Professional SP3 (x86) on a Windows Server 2003 R2 (x64)-based Active Directory network.
I am trying to find the best way to use group policy and/or scripting to automatically deploy the proper printer drivers, connect to the proper printer, and set the proper default printer based upon the room the computer is in. Already, our computers are divided into OU's by room, so it's no problem applying a group policy to them based on their location. But I'd like suggestions on the best approach to take for this.
