tree recommendations


We have a relatively small tree. Users are broken into three OUs of about 100 each. There are a few others OUs for specific services, such DNSDHCP, SLP etc. A few of the servers used by everyone are located in the O container. The broker and NDPSM are located in the O as well. I am debating what to do with the printer agents themselves. Is there any reason not to locate the printer agents with the OU where the users are located? Or would it better to locate them in the O with the broker and manager?

Any suggestions?

Re: tree recommendations


I would prefer to place the PAs as close to the users using them as
possible. First of all they users needs access to them when printing
and of course during installation of the printer.
Second of all, I think it makes good sense, since the PAs are actually
used by the users and not by the server (even though, the NDPS Manager
also needs to access them for printing), it's not the server that submits
the print job but the user.

Then of course having all printers in a separate container called printers
may make sense as well, as it eases for administrators/users to find the
printer object.
