Installing USB Printers

I can't seem to find the answer in the documentation, so...

Is it possible to install a USB printer via ZCM Printer Policies?

Thanks in advance,
Pat.

Re: Installing USB Printers

I'd be interested in the reply to this too.

Also, is there any plan to allow the printer policy to print direct to an IP (ie JetDirect) address?

Patrick,

as far as I can see, only if it uses one of the standard ports - sounds
like a candidate for http://support.novell.com/enhancement

Re: Installing USB Printers

Is there a reason that Zenworks Configuration Management doesn't appear in the Product Line/Suite when you select Feature Enhancement ?

AndystewartSL,

it's an accident of the way novell's internal product names work...
choose the suite, and you'll see zcm10 as an option

Re: Installing USB Printers

Hi Shaun,

Thanks for your response. I think im just going to put the installation on my clone/sysprep image and that way, should it be reloaded, the drivers will pull thru as well.

If anyone has any ideas about installing USB printers on the fly i'd love to hear about it though.

Thanks again!
