Pushing out drivers from a server isn't bad it's more of the local workstation environments that are time consuming, laying hands on each PC. Peer to peer networks I'm referring to. The countless hours I've spent loading local drivers over the years is enough time to wait in a BMV line! (x500) With the technology that is out there today there must be a way, right?
New printer on network set via static IP address. Host name let's say is NEWPRINTER.
12 workstations - all Windows OS with unique log in credentials.
All users need drivers loaded on their PC's for advanced printing features using manufacturer's model specific software drivers. (No "generic" or universal drivers in this case)
The only way I can think to do this is find one PC on the network that could act as the "server" but that PC must remain on in order for others to print. Share the driver from that one PC and then run a script right?
Or, is there other ways where you don't need to worry about all that?
