I have a 2k3 server based network that has several shared printers (not network printers). I need a way for multiple users to be able to connect to and use the printers.

Originally, i setup the printers under a domain admin account and found that when other users log onto the machines they don't have the printer. A shared printers only connected per user? not per machine?

Is there a way to create a GPO that will connect a shared printer and make it the default? I am pretty sure you can do it with a vb script but i would prefer not doing it that way.

Thanks all

In my experience it has always been a printer shows up on all profiles.

Also the only ways I know to add printers are through WSH, printui.dll, and other third party apps. Never heard of a simple GPO that installs a printer.
