I know someone already tried to help me but I think I was too vague when I explained it the first time. We are running a 2012r2 domain. We have one site that has an old printer server running Windows 2003. I want to write a login script or call a VBS from the original .BAT what will map the local users in that office to printers on their local server. Someone gave me some commands similar to what I listed below, but I actually need to run this from a login script that I will assign to a few users in active directory. The script needs to map or call a vbs that will map local printers. The info below may be useful, but I need assistance in calling it from a .bat, where to store the scripts in active directory and just general instructions on how to make this happen. I am not able to add Print Management to Windows 2003 so I need to learn how to do it the old way..thanks

Can I use this script? I assume this needs to be named VBS, but where do I store it? With the rest of the login scripts in AD?
On Error Resume Next
Dim netPrinter, newprt1
Set netPrinter = CreateObject("New-Object -Com WScript.Network")
newprt1 = "\\PrtSrv\PRT IRC350"
newprt2 = "\\PrtSrv\PRT IR400"
netPrinter.AddWindowsPrinterConnection newprt1, True
netPrinter.AddWindowsPrinterConnection newprt2, True
netPrinter.SetDefaultPrinter "\\PrtSrv\PRT IR400"

You may not need to use a VBS script as you can insert the following command into your .Bat file

RunDll32 printui.dll PrintUIEntry /y /in /n \\YourPrintServerName\YourSharedPrinterName
