Setting Default Printer via GPP


  • We have several PC Labs for our Students, and normally we have 2 printers per lab.  We would like to have half of the lab printing to one printer and the other half of the lab printing to the other printer.  I have been successful in deploying the correct printer to the PC's, but cannot seem to get the Default Printer set.

    I created 2 Computer Groups for the Labs, then used Item level Targeting to determine which group gets which printer.  Regardless of where I set the Default Printer - either as part of the Computer Group Policy (Under User Configuration) or as part of the Students' Default Login policy - the printers still do not set as Default.

    I'm fairly new to GPO and GPP creation, so I could use all the help I can get.
