In our school district, our Students need to print in each of the classrooms or labs they are in throughout the day, but we only want them to have the option to print to the printer located in the classroom or lab they are in. I have been successful in deploying printers via Print Management or Computer Configuration GPP, but I have NOT been able to set these printers as the Default printer.
I believe the issue is that the Students are in one OU, and the Computers are in another. I have configured the policy at the Computer OU, which deploys the printer as needed. The User Configuration of the policy is ignored since the Students are in a different OU. I have tried Linking the policy to the Students OU, but this delivers all printers per policy to the students, and we end up with abandoned print jobs and wasted paper.
I need Expert assistance in getting this working properly, setting the Default printer per Student as they login to PC's/Laptops in various different Computer OU's.
