Hi,

I am trying to get some guidance on setting up network printing in my
environment.  Our standard practice is to create a print server add
network printers and share them.  The advantage is managing driver
updates and printers on on box (central management).  The downside is
educating users on how to connect.  Also, if we connect to a shared
printer while logged in under an admin account it doesn't copy over to
the other users.

If this is still the best practice for setting up network printers,
then how can I automate installing the printer for users without
having to be logged in as them?

Thanks
