I have created a simple solution wich has been a huge success (read:
full stop in support calls regarding printer connections)
I have a sentral startmenu, wich is generated at login, depending on
group memberships. This eased the deployment of the startmenu items.
In this startmenu I have created a Printer folder, with a three
containing regions then printers by name.
(Ex: Start - Programs - Printer - North - Northpole_Marketing or Start -
Programs - Printer - Vest - Oslo_IT)
All printer objects in the startmenu is a batch file refering to the
con2prn tool from the resourcekit.
Now all a user has to do to connect to a printer he has no clue on what
name/printserver, all he has to do is find it in the three. Another tip
is to create a batch to delete all printers, to clean up things for
users who connect to a lot of printers.

Kixtart question for all those kix gurus. I know that I can add printer
connections based on group membership. Has anyone created anything
beyond that like a kix batch file that allows you to add any printer
connection and is interactive?
