Automaticly distribute iprint

Hi.

What is the best methode to automaticly distribute iprinters to
workstations?

In Zdm 7 we can use the policy, but then we end up with 40 -50
different policies.

You could distribute printers using the login script, using some logic to
test for group membership.

Or you could use iPrint Client Management (iCM) which is similar to the
NDPS feature called Remote Printer Management (RPM).

You can push out printers by what groups a user is in, what container or
to specific users.
Hope that helps

Thanks......

I now found out I can use containers to distribute printers.
I found this in iManager. (I checked in C1 before)

You could create a nal application and distribute the iPrint client as a
force run nal. We did it that way as it allowed us to "tweak" the
installation of the iPrint client on the workstations and allowed usu to
remove iPrint from the taskbar and start menu

Can you use containers to distribute printers to workstation objects
with ICM? I thought that this cannot be done.
