Hi Al,

Wow...you always seem to end up cleaning up the mess on these farms you
inherit. But I guess there was a reason for deploying it that way in the
first place.

Can you not remove that mess and add a print server?

When you say the perms are not working, is it that everyone can see the
printers, or that everyone can print to them? If users are still able to
print to them, could the users be in the Power Users or even
Administrators groups? I've seem that before :(

You won't be able to hide the local printers, but just remove the ability
for users to print to them.

For example: If deploying Acrobat Std or Pro you end up with a local Adobe
PDF printer. To secure it so that only users of the "Acrobat Standard
Users" group can print to it, I do the following using the setacl

Set AcrobatGroup=corp\Acrobat Standard Users
setacl.exe -on "Adobe PDF" -ot prn -actn clear -clr dacl,sacl
setacl.exe -on "Adobe PDF" -ot prn -actn ace -ace "n:administrators;p:full"
setacl.exe -on "Adobe PDF" -ot prn -actn ace -ace "n:%AcrobatGroup%;p:print"

Hope that helps.
