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

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
