We just installed a 2012 Server Standard and would like to know whats the best way to push out printers to all workstations. I know there is a role/feature that can be installed, but have never used this. Please advise on the best/most efficeint way to roll out printers.

I just installed the print server role and pushed all printers out via group policy preferences:

Setup Print Server Role:  http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/cd7c2e/how-to-install-the-print-server-on-windows-server-2012/

Add your printers

Group Policy Push for printers: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731292.aspx

And I think our topic is wrong.  It says Exchange so you might not get many experts commenting on this outside of the category.  Should be Server 2012
