  • Printer Management

    I need to give a group of users access to manage all printer aspects without giving these users server operator or power user access on the servers. I want them to be able to add printers, change printer ports, add new drivers if needed, etc. Has anyone run into this in the past?

    Thanks

    I believe there's a group called Printer Operators... not sure if that will do what you want, but have you tried it?

      I have tried Print Operators and it does not give the needed access to manage the printers.

        Look and see if the Print Operators group has permissions to load and unload device drivers.

        In the local Group Policy or GPO.

        Computer Config ----> Windows Settings ---> Security Settings ---> Local Policies ---> User's Rights Assignment.

        Windows 2008 has the Enterprise Printer Management feature, so worth looking into delegating management of that. I have never used it myself though.

          On the print server, on the security tab of the printer make sure the user (Or Group he belongs to) has the Manage printers permission.
