I have a windows 2003 server on which file server and print server role is configured.Whenever any computer configured to domain login on this server logon, at that time due to bat file in netlogon executes and automatically maps the shared folder of this server.net use command has been used for this purpose.But now I tried to have the printers which are installed and shared on this server to be automatically installed when client logon to domain but each time the script show device successfully installed but when I open printer and fax in cntrol panel no printer is found there.for automatically installing printer also i have used net use command.So if anyone know the commaand or script to make the printer automaticaaly install on startup when client logon to domain please help.

If you are using:

net use lpt1: \\server\printer

then the printer will not show up under printers and faxes

You'll need to use:

con2prt /c \\server\printer

Then, the printer should show up normally
