  • Map printers during logon with some particularities...


    I'm looking to map printers with logon scripts. This isn't hard at all and plenty of exemple to do it is available. Here are the particularities of our environment:

    - Mixed bag of Windows XP, Vista and 7 32 bits and 64 bits
    - Users are not local administrator of their machines

    Regarding the mixed bag of OS, i think this might not be an issue. As long as the sevrer has both versions (32 and 64 bits) of the drivers, the OS will install the right one.

    The fact that the users aren't local administrator might cause some problems. That means that users cannot install printers on their PC. So i guess the script must install the printers as a local administrator of the machine.

    The first thing i wanted to do is set the logon script under computer configuration instead of user configuration.

    So, any thought about this ?
