Hi Experts,
i have a windows 2008 R2 domain controller. we have 3 classroom with 24 computers in each. Each classroom has its own printer. All printers are registered in AD.  All systems are on the same subnet,
Students however inadvertently print to the " wrong" printer i.e. A user in lab 3 might print to the printer in lab 1.  I need to control this so my question is: Can I group computers into their respective labs and force the systems to use the preinter in that lab?  can I achieve this though AD, GPO or VB script? What would you recommend?
