  • Suggestions on installing printers in a non domain environment

    Hi Guys

    Since things are moving more and more web based these days and often not using a windows domain, as in the case of an office that uses google apps entirely. How do you deploy printers quickly and easily? Obviously manually installing is a PITA. I know of papercut. Any one have suggestions for admins or even customers to add printers to new computers in a non AD/domain environment?

    How many printers / clients are we talking about?
    If small numbers, training users to go to \\server and double click on the printer seems reasonable (subject to permission to install drivers)
    Alternatively, how about a script to do them all in one go?

    As for not using a domain, I would think twice as it offers so many benefits (security and group policy to name but two)
