    Can I set the default printer for individual users remotely through the
    server? (without using GPO's?)

    Bryce.

  2. Hi Bryce,

    Thank you for posting in the SBS newsgroup.

    By default, SBS will install all shared network printers for all SBS users
    via logon script. (You must add the users by using the SBS Add User
    Wizard.) Since this script will be launched when the user logs on his
    computer, all shared network printers will be automatically installed even
    he already deleted them.

    I think you can use a script to assign default printer for different users.

    Detail Information:

    If you're interested in compose a script to achieve such goal, you can post
    your related questions to MSDN newsgroups.
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/newsgroups/default.asp

    In doing so, you're able to get the most qualified responses and share your
    experience with them.

    [Note] Please also make sure that the users' original logon script has been
    disabled.

    I hope the above info helps.

    If there's anything I can do for you, please feel free to post back.
