rights to print and not print

Ok...is there a way to do teh following:

I have several printers that I want all my OU's in the tree (and man there
are a bunch) to be able to print to EXCEPT 2 or 3. Do I have to add every
OU specifically into the list and leave out those I do not want to be able
to print? There must be an easier way if I have multiple printers I need to
do this with.

I thought about adding the top most OU to the allow list and then maye do
an IRF against the OU's that I don't want to print. That doesn't work.
Printer rights don't inherit.

thanks

Did you make these printers secure so that only authenticated persons (in
other words we now have an NDS identity and rights for that person) can
use them?

Yes, I've turned authentication on high. left on medium any authenticated
user can print to them. We use Pcounter to track all this so we know who
prints where when and what.
