    Since the Working Group on a computer need to add domain print server, to
    connect each time the user must enter a password and,

    I would like to achieve through the startup script, thank you.

  2. Are you saying you have a computer in a workgroup that needs to access a
    printer on a domain print server? If so, the best solutions are, in order:

    * Join the computer to the domain - don't use workgroups / standalone
    workstations on your network
    * Add it as a *local* printer on the workstation using a standard TCP/IP
    port (presuming it's truly a network printer
    * Set up the user account on the workstation to use the same password as the
    *identically named* user account on the domain
    This would probably need to be a login script, not a startup script. You'd
    have to embed a password in there regardless. What's the reason for your
    current configuration?
