I don't know about the batch file, but you can download KIX (and the
manual) for free at www.kixstart.org

how about if you "don't" have KIX?  Can this be done with a simple batch
file as well?

        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")





        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

        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...
