Hi all,

If I were to add printers using policies over a login or startup script,
what would the easiest way be?

I was under impression that it was possible to add printers on a CLI
with something like "net add \\server\printername", but can't find any
documentation on this. Maybe I was imagining...

I did however find vbs scripts and so on, but all seem to require some
serious digging in finding the exactly correct printer and inf
driver-file name... I'm trying to go around this part, we have several
printers, all of a different model...

Any hints and pointers are appreciated?
