Map a network printer in a logon script

25 April 2007

As long as your printer is networked, connected to a print server and shared, then mapping the printer via a logon script is fairly easy.

Firstly consider adding an echo line of text to inform users of what’s happening. For example:

echo Installing printers...

Then the code to map the printers on the client machines would be something like this:

start \\server\printershare

This will certainly save your IT staff a lot time and hassle going around installing printers etc around the office.
