Is there a way with group policy or some other software to automatically install network printers on new computers I setup on our network?  We are in a win 2008 r2 environment.  The printer/copiers are Savin.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you set the printer to map via Group Policy Preferences then it should install when the computer is joined to the domain.

I do this a lot in Windows Server 2012 R2.  The steps are similar.  Here are the steps:

To deploy printers to users or computers by using Group Policy
1 Open Print Management.
2 In the left pane, click Print Servers, click the applicable print server, and click Printers.
3 In the center pane, right-click the applicable printer, and then click Deploy with Group Policy.
4 In the Deploy with Group Policy dialog box, click Browse, and then choose or create a new GPO for storing the printer connections.
5 Click OK.
6 Specify whether to deploy the printer connections to users, or to computers:
  -To deploy to groups of computers so that all users of the computers can access the printers, select the The computers that this GPO applies to (per machine) check box.
  -To deploy to groups of users so that the users can access the printers from any computer they log onto, select the The users that this GPO applies to (per user) check box.
7 Click Add.
8 Repeat steps 3 through 6 to add the printer connection setting to another GPO, if necessary.
9 Click OK.
