We currently have several locations around the globe and are looking to start automatic printer deployment using gpo.
We will try to limit the number of group policies through use of gpp and item level targeting of groups and apply the gpo's to sites.
The issue I'm coming up against is how best to manage traveling users.
If a user travels from one site to another site in the same or another domain (same forest) they will receive the printers for that site through the gpo applied to that site.
I want to have a user be able to travel to another site and automatically receive the closest printer. If I have several floors at a site there will be one default printer per floor which causes an issue if the user needs to choose from a list and they are not familiar with the office layout.
Looking for ideas and what others have done to solve the issue. (a solution as automated as possible, the less user action needed, the better)
