We want to push out printer 1, printer 2 & printer 3 via GP, no problem you say, but we're having troubles assigning printer 1 as default printer via PG to one set of users and printer 2 as defualt for another set, can anyone steer me in the right direction?

Create a security group for each of the group of users (E.G. Printer 1 / Printer 2).  Add the users into the required groups.

Create two group policies to push the printers and assign them to the required security group.  Push all the printers in the group policies, just change which one is the default depending on the group.

If you've done this and its not working then please provide screen shots of each GP and settings.

Add all the printer in both policies.  Just change the default printer on each policy.  That way all the users get all the printers but get the different defaults.

Just don't add the same user to both groups
