I am working in a Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 Professional environment. I am trying to deploy printers using group policy preferences. There are two different groups of users, each in their own OU. I have three different computer labs that each have their own printer. I want to setup Group Policy Preferences so that no matter which user from either OU logs on to whatever lab computer, he will receive the default printer for that particular lab. Responces in forums indicate that this can be done, but nobody really specifies how they have accomplished this task. Has anyone carried out this process successfully? Thanks for your assistance.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Assign the GPOs to the OUs containing the computers in that lab. The users will get the settings when they log onto the machine
