Print Spooler and GPO
Posted on 2011-10-18
Is that possible to use Windows 2003 GPO to start or stop Print Spooler services depending on the Security Group?
I have a group fo computer mixed with Windows XP and Windows 7 that shared with 4 different security group (Leader, Full Access, BackOffice - Who allow to print), and (NoEmail - who not allow to print). None of the above Group has local admin rights.
I created a test OU, move the machine to the OU, created a GPO, in User Configuration, I created a bacth file to start the spooler when login and stop a print spooler when logout. and link to the OU. I change the Print Spooler Services at the PC to manual for start-up.
when the system starts-up and login as the NoEmail users, the Print Spooler started in the manual mode and user unable to change the services.
Any ideas what I did wrong?
