    Hello,

    I was wondering if it would be possible to set a default printer for a computer security group. We have a print server that deploys printers to computer groups. I understand that default printer can be set through the user policy and can also be set by computer OU with loopback enabled, but we need it to be at the computer group level. Reason being is that computer groups were created for printer deployment by dept/location. For each computer group, we’d like to set a default printer. Also by OU would not work because some computers in the same OU could be located in different locations.

    Would it be possible to create a script with if then statement at user logon to determine if this computer is in a certain group, then set this printer as default?
