Hello,

The Printer Management console (PMC) - is the MMC snapin for Windows 2003 R2
for managing printers on scattered print servers in the enterprise.

The specification for running it is that the the account has to have local
administrator rights on the print servers it works with - which is easy
enough to do -
However - Administrator rights seems rather excessive -
Is there any specific rights that can be assigned rather than doing the
'blanket' add to local administrators group ?

cheers - Mart
