Not delete a printer



  • Is there a way , when choosing to have fog Add/Delete printer management to have it NOT delete a printer that it did not push out? We have some software installed printers (Smart, XPS, …etc) that I cannot push out via fog that are part of the image and I do not want them deleted.

    Actually it would still be allowed because fog does not install software or printers as the logged in user. It installs using the system user which is essentially the root user of system level activities allowing printers and software to be installed but maintaining user level permissions.

    Depends on what security context it tries within. If it’s under the user that’s logged in: no. If it’s as a service or as a local administrator or AD administrator account, then yes.

    I’m not sure how it works, I use AD to deploy printers.

    However, you can look at setting local Group Policy on machines to disable users installing/uninstalling printers.

    If you’re in an AD environment, you can remove their permission to install or uninstall printers…
