hi peeps,

We've recently installed printers on our remote desktop server (2008 R2). We did it to prevent the 'redirect' and wanted each printer on the server. However, whenever any user logs on they end up seeing ALL of the printers.

How can we do it so that users of one department only see a specific set of printers, then another department only sees a specific set of printers from that server?

can this be done?

Thanks
Yashy

Hello Yashy,

I would do it with groups.  Create a group in AD for each printer then go to the "Pritner Properties" of each printer.  Open the Security TAB and remove the tick from "print" for everyone and add your group in its place.

Obviosly then add the appropriate users to the groups.  If a user does not have the print permission at least then they dont have the read permission so they won't see it.

Cheers,

Tony
