Script out how to Give local user full permissions to a printer
Posted on 2013-05-28
I have 1000's of points of sale running windows 2003 under the context of a non-privileged "local" (non-AD) user account, let's call it USER1. Employees using these points of sale have a need to do printer administrative things like delete print jobs. They cannot do this with just their USER1 account.
The local user account is the same across all systems, USER1.
The local printer name is the same across all systems, LABEL.
They cannot be added to the Administrators or Power Users group. I have verified they can do the necessary things if I manually remote to the system and edit the permissions of the LABEL printer to add the USER1 with Full Control. Manually doing this across all systems is not an option. I cannot find a powershell or other way to do this.
I need a remote way to set the necessary permissions for the local user account to be able to manage this printer.
