GPO, GPP, Script to remove network printer
Posted on 2014-02-19
ok i know this question has been asked 1000's of times, however here is my issue.
i am trying to remove network printers with the above methods. server is win2003, clients win7, without admin rights.
i have tried GPO, GPP and shutdown/startup scripts to remove the printers, nothing seems to work. the printers werent installed with GP so removing them from deployed printers isnt an option. i have no issues adding our new printers with GPO, GPP it is just removing the old ones. i am testing on a machine with admin rights and still no luck. if i run the script direct from the computer it works fine. i have checked GPresult and my script is under computer config, in the right OU and has a recent update time. it just doesnt seem to remove the printers. i have been through all options in GPP and GPO. none of those seem to work either. i was able to remove a printer with GPO but had to put in the IP manually. ticking the box to delete all IP printers didnt work. any ideas what i could be missing?
