Default changing default printer on domain computers.

So if I have computers on a domain that is on windows 2003 and the client computers are running vista business how do I change the printer default from one printer to another that is already installed on the computers?
I am aware that I am able to do it computer by computer, User by user but that would take forever. Am I just missing something as to how to change the default printer for everyone that logs into that particular computer?

Default Re: changing default printer on domain computers.

You need to run a login script that sets the default printers (and it can also install printers).

See this LINK.

Not sure how familiar you are with VBS scripts and user login scripts so if you have any more questions let me know since this is how we do it on our domain. (We have XP though but I'm assuming the same script will work).

Domain computer means Active Directory domain controller?
