Remove/Add printers locally
Posted on 2014-03-17
Hi all. I apologize if this question was answered in a previous post. I'm new at my current employer.
Current scenario: 6 teams of 20 users per team print to 4 printers. The printers are locally installed as TCP/IP port on the computer, therefor making each computer it's own print spooler and if a print job hangs up, it will only affect that single computer/user, not the rest of the team members.
6 new printer will replace the 4 old printers. Would like to remove the current 4 locally installed printer automatically, via group policy or other mean. I would hate to go to 120 work station to remove the printers manually.
As for installing the 6 new printers, all users will have all 6 printers installed in their printers list. What's the best practice? Implement the 6 new printers locally as we currently have the 4 printers installed or build a print server. Locally has worked well except when a user needs a new printer added, I have to manually install it locally.
I'd like to automate this installation process, not looking forward to install 6 printers on 120 users.
All 6 printers are the same model.
Thank you. Much appreciated.
