If you are using KIX, you can put this in their logon script.  This
works well in an Active Directory environment.  Create a group for each
printer.  Add the people who need each printer to each group.  Put a
line in the KIX script like this (which will also delete the name of the
old print server from their profile).

if ingroup("NameofPrinterGroup")

            DELPRINTERCONNECTION ("\\OldPrintServerName\PrinterName")

            ADDPRINTERCONNECTION ("\\PrintServerName\PrinterName")

endif

 

If you add this under the Add statement, you can also set their default
(everybody in the group gets this though)

            SETDEFAULTPRINTER ("\\LMS2KDATA\LSENGHP4050")


Hope this helps

Subject: [windows2000] Print Servers

 

Hello,

 

I am looking to replace our existing NT print server for 10 printers. We
connect our users manually to the printers. Once I complete the
replacement I was wondering if there was any was to connect my users to
the printers without having to sit at every desk and manually connect
them. The new server will be running windows 2000 server with Active
Directory. Can anyone give me some advice on how to handle it and does
anyone know of any immediate problems I may have?

 

 

Thanks in advance...

 

Paul
