Print mapping non domain computers

Print mapping non domain computers

Print mapping non domain computers

Looking for a solution that would map non domain computers (thin clients)to their assigned printer(s). I work in the banking industry that uses up to 800 thin clients (non-domain) and 100 domain PC's. The majority of the thin clients have a single thermal printer mapped to it and least two laser printers.

The script we currently use has been having issues since we migrated to a new print server, so it's mapping the same printers twice, one from the old server and one from the new server.

From I what I've been reading you cannot use Active Directory for non domain computers for mapping.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

RE: Print mapping non domain computers

Map by IP address instead of name.

Make sure port 9100 is available, and you should be fine, even across sites.

Just my $.02
