Normally, yes...  But if Administrator (the user named Administrator,
apparently not just someone in Domain Admins) adds the printer
connection (to a network printer), it is then visible to all users.

What I want is that if a Domain Admin adds a printer (connection to a
network printer), it will behave just as if Administrator does it, and
be available to all users.

Nothing to do with printer drivers - they reside on the server, and if
not, they come installed with Windows.
