What about if you don't have a print server but a tcp/ip printer?

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")



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


Hope this helps

Subject: [windows2000] Print Servers




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.
