Hello

we deploy our printers via group policy.

Users have roaming profiles.

When they are in room b they get printer connections for printers that are in room A for eg.  How do I configure the profile so that it does not remember all the printer connections for the other printers in the school?

Thanks.

W2K, 

We use network groups in the schools we support to control which printers can be seen or printed to, are you doing that with the above details you have shared?

If so, what are you doing or how elaborate of a configuration is being used?





AN FYI about printers in schools, but this is Not related to your question; For those that might ever do work in a school, remember to have staff print tests to known safe printers, where students are blocked from accessing the printer memory and getting access to or printing a copy of some future test. Yes, printers cache things like that and students are smart enough to get the tests if access is not prevented.

Pupils are member of student group in AD.  We use Print Management to installing printers via GPO.  That's it.

I have found con2prt that allows me to disconnect and connect network printers via log off and log on script.  I will use it to disconnect all network printers during log off and see if only the printer they are meant to have is mapped when they log on.

If they still get all the others I will use con2prt to map the desired printer via start up on a per client basis so anyone logging on to that pc gets that printer.

Does the PC's stay in room A or B, no laptops that are moved between the rooms ?
If that's the case, you could put all the computerobjects from the PC's that are in room A in a seperate OU "room A" and link the GPO for installing the printer of room A only to that OU.
