Mandatory profiles - Printer scripts - Windows2K S

  Muzz_former_aol_employee 18:45 01 Dec 2005

I am in the middle of trying to sort out a small ICT suite which has 14 Windows 2000 workstations, 2 laser jet printers and a Windows 2000 Server. The workstations have all be reimaged using a fresh NTFS partition with Windows installed and software setup. The server has rebuilt and software installed and the printer drivers on the server and all workstations.

Users logon and have mandatory profile setup on the server which loads icons, desktop layout, favorites and other bits and bobs etc.

There is a script setup on the server which tells each workstation to setup/connect as it were to the laserjet printers. When any users logon the printer script will not pickup the printers they have to be added manually for each user. Since there is over 400+ users that could logon this is annoying and the script needs to work.

When the Administrator account is used to logon which doesn't have the manatory profile the printer script works fine. I think either the mandatory profile is stopping the printer scripts or something in Group Policy for the container with the Users in.

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? The printers were setup on the profile before it was made mandatory using .MAN
