Ok but I have 2000 users and 600 printers. Do you have something working
to map the printers to the users, or group of users, in the build time
of the netlogon?
How do you setup permissions in the samba to allow or deny access to the
printers? Do you set individual printers like shares in the samba?

Tnxs in advance.
