VMWare View Location-Based Printing
Posted on 2012-04-04
We are planning on rolling out several hundred thin clients to run VMWare View desktops. We need to get location-based printing figured out before we can deploy.
Following the guides I have found online, this is what I have done so far.
I have installed the Group Policy editor on our View manager and registered the .dll's.
I have entered the mappings for a printer to a single View desktop within "Autoconnect map Additional Printers for VMWare View"
The GPO I created has been applied to my test desktop, but the printer does not appear.
The questions that pop into my mind are..
1. Do these .dll's have to be registered on our Domain Controllers?
2. How do I get the correct printer driver for my printer (without installing it onto our 'gold' image) and where do I put in in Windows Explorer?
