During new network implementations, one of the most tedious tasks that comes up is setting up printers on my client’s workstations. With Windows 2003 R2, Microsoft has made it extremely easy to do this.
Using the new print management capabilities of R2, you can deploy printers via group policy to Vista client computers. You can also do this with XP client computers if you use an executable file called pushprinterconnections.exe which you can find on the server you installed the print management component on.
Once you’ve used this component you’ll never go back. It’s quite easy to setup and deploy. You can find more information regarding the print management component at the following links.
