How to setup SBS printer on all workstations automatically

Q: I have a few SBS 2003 clients and Windows 2003 server clients who would like all active directory printers installed automatically on all client computers for all users, instead of manually adding them using the Add Printer Wizard. Is there any way to this?

A: Windows Small Business Server adds a printer published in Active Directory to client computers running Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000 Professional.

To do that, please follow these steps:

  1. Make sure all the printers have "show in active directory" selected on the Sharing tab.
  2. Open the Server Management console.
  3. Click Client Computers.
  4. Run "Assign applications to client computers" Wizard.
  5. Select all the clients and click next.
  6. Select Advanced.  Check Printers. 

All networking printers should be installed  on the workstations when next logon.
