Hi all,

We have a number of customers in the same AD 2008 domain. The customers are separated in different OUs and each have their own domain controller within the domain. This is working well in all aspects.

But when searching via "Add printer" in the control panel from the customers Windows 7/10 machines, customer A can see customer Bs printers. Setting security permissions on the printers them selves does not fix this, as you can then still see the printers not just print to them if you lack permissions. The printers for each customer are shared from each customers domain controller.

Is there anyway to limit so that user within customer A only sees printers shared from customer A's domain controller and so on?
