I' am currently trying to reset the printer preferences on our network printers, so that all the printers are set to print in black and white and that they are full duplex. The only way to configure this is to delete the printers on the print server and re-add them specifying the correct preferences before they are shared out again. The problem that I have is that the printers were not removed off the client machines when I deleted them and so the settings have remained the same as before they were configured to black and white and duplex.
I believe in order to be successful I need to removed the printer completely through GPO and then add it back in again. I've been looking at using WMIC for removing the printer, but I'm getting access denied on the client machines. Does anyone know why this might be and how I can get around it?
Thanks in advance for your assistance
