I'm rolling out GPO's for printer mappings.
We have multiple sites and each site has its own need regarding how this GPO handles the printers.
AD Group: Domain\Printers Room 1
AD Group: Domain\Printer Room 2
GPO: New shared Printers / Update
Item Level Filtering:
Multiple printers tied to each AD Group.
No default printer setup in policys.
Question is can users set their own default printer? I would assume that since I did not specifiy a default that it would not overwrite what they have already setup. In my testing I see where if users have a local printer and have this set as a default it retains this setting on reboot. If they DO NOT have a local printer and set one of their networked printers as a default it will remove this default setting and apply it to a different one.. One that doesnt have the default setting assigned to it by the policy. How it determines what it wants to assign as the default is beyond me.
