Printer Deployment and Restiction

    Question

  • Hi Frenz,

                I have 03 Printers in my office each one in every floor. So we have deployed printers using GPO on each floor.

                So for example Printer 01 will be configured in my PC using GPO, that is perfect, but still I'm able to access the printer 02 and 03 and add on my PC through Network share. I should restrict this behavior (User should be able add the printers on their own apart from GPO printer). Someone please help me on the same.

  • You can restrict the printer with user or sec groups.

    Also you can restrict "Add Printer" using GPO as well.

  • Hi,
    You could also organize the users into different OUs based on their floors or departments, and then deploy the related printers in different GPOs linking to related OU.
