Install printer during OSD deployment

Hi,

we are using MS System Center Configuration Manager R2.

For a OSD Deployment of Win 8.1 I planned to install printer, so that I don't need to do that
manually after completition of the WIndows deployment.

Therefore I created a Task Sequence with a command line step, which include the following command:
rundll32 printui PrintUIEntry /in /n"\\servername\HP LaserJet" /q

During the deployment and running the Task Sequence it installs successfully the driver, but the printers are not visible after login to Windows. Drivers are installed properly as I can see them on the driver tab of the printserver properties.

Any idea how I can setup this TS that every user has this driver installed and visible?

I think the Printer is only mapped for the "Local System" Account of that PC and not for all Users.

You could try the Option /ga so that it's creating the Printer Connection for all users on the pc or you run that step as another account in the Task sequence

Have you tried to run that command manually first?

If you have Network Printers i would prefer using a print Servr controlled by Print Management.
So there would also be no Need to install Printers or Drivers manually
