Printers being installed but not wanting them
nhottinger posted a topic in Windows 7We are a full windows shop with Dell computers. We use GPO and a login script to map printers for specific pc's. Recently we have had more and more domain pc's installing printers that are not even in the area of this pc. The pc or user are not members of the group that should get these printers. We have checked all the GPO's we can think of, but it seems like everyday there is another pc getting these printers installed. Does anyone have an idea of what is happening here? Here is an example of the script that we are running. Option Explicit dim WshNetwork Sub printers Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network") WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection \\SERVER\PR03 WshNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter \\SERVER\PR03 WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection \\SERVER\PR02 End Sub Call printers
Good morning, I have printers set for inventory on my SCCM 2012 environment. I need to run a query on all USB/LPT connected printers in the district. Can someone please help me with a query/report or something that I can run that will give me a list of all printer models that have been collected from all my clients? This will help me in collecting drivers while we go forward with our district-wide windows 7 migrations. Many thanks!
Goodmorning everyone, We were experiencing some problems with our Windows 2008R2 Enterprise Terminal server. These were mostly GPO related and have been solved for the most part. We now want to get rid of one final warning that keeps popping up in our event viewer (ID 1530): Uw registerbestand is nog steeds in gebruik door andere toepassingen of services. Het bestand wordt nu verwijderd. De toepassingen en services die het registerbestand nu gebruiken, werken achteraf mogelijk niet meer goed. DETAIL - 1 user registry handles leaked from \Registry\User\S-1-5-21-957491786-3808256167-313183649-7283: Process 1312 (\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Windows\System32\svchost.exe) has opened key \REGISTRY\USER\S-1-5-21-957491786-3808256167-313183649-7283\Printers\DevModePerUser What it says is that the registery file is still in use by a someone or something. We noticed the word "Printer" and went searching for possible solution and cause. Apparently this error happens every single time a users logs out when he/she took their locally installed printers with them while connecting to the terminal server. If we make a RDP file and disable the local resource - Printers, then we do not get this error. We do not need our users to be able to use their own printers (or any printer for that matter). My question then is, how do I block them from adding their locally installed printers when they connect to our terminal server? Through a GPO we can block them from printing to their local printers, but that does not solve anything for us. I've been searching the internet for two days without luck. At the RDP-TCP properties I can disable the use of LPT and COM ports, but these days printers are usually USB or network connected. Does anyone know if what I want is possible (without creating a RDP file for every single user for them to use)? Would help us quite a lot! Regards, Dennis
