Windows 7 Printer Management
New Puppet Dev here and looking for some assistance here...
I'm trying to find a way to do the following, but at a loss as to how to do it in puppet.
Have like 4 or 5 labs with 20-30 computers each where we want to do the following:
If the computer in the lab does not have 'Printer A', we want it added to the computer.
Printer A is hosted on an IPP type server, so the printer needs to be pointed to http://server/printers/PrinterA
Now, I know some people would recommend using the Powershell Printer method, however, Powershell Printer method only works on Windows 8 machines, not Windows 7 (Even upgrading the Powershell, you don't have the Powershell cmdlets to do it)
So we have a two fold issue... One, there is a very basic kind of command line script, but the other issue we see is that with Puppet setup to keep 'pushing' the script execute, it makes the system have multiple copies of a printer, to the point it will sometimes break it.
So looking to see if there is a way to do this.
