Default Printer Setting....Question

OES2 Linux iPrint services. Deploying printers using ICM. Only setting
default printer within ICM when 1 printer is deployed. If multiple
printers are deployed default printer setting is not used.

Issue: Users get their printers then "set" the default printer to
whatever they want and it doesn't "stick".

Can anyone tell me if the printers get "re-pushed" at every login (because
that would explain the issue I'm seeing).

Are you using Windows or Linux on the workstations?

Not sure about linux, but windows it shouldnt happen unless you
have set a policy somewhere identifying a certain printer as the
default. If that were the case, reinstall the client and see how
that helps.

Not using Linux this is windows and no printer policies are applied. Not
sure why this is happening....

I remember fixing an issue with ICM and setting the default printer. But that was fixed in the client a while back. What version of the client are you running? We have v4.36 as our current latest. Are you pushing printers through the groups? If so, that will cause some irregularities in which default printer gets set.

I believe the client is 4.36. Yes we are pushing printers through groups,
but not setting the default printer unless there is only 1 printer pushed.
The issue we are seeing is when multiple printers are pushed, then the
user sets the default printer by right clicking on it and selecting
defaut printer. That's the setting that doesn't stick.
