This article is about the '''univention-printer-assignment''' package, as well as the functions of this package and the handling on the site of Windows Systems.
 
The package "univention-printer-assignment" searches over the LDAP service for all printers in the network and sorts them alphabetic according to their group affiliation. The printer that was added first, in the alphabetic first group will be flagged as the default printer.
 
  
The package univention-printer-assignment is available in the [[Howtos UCS 3.0|Cool Solutions Repository]] for UCS 3.0. Before installing the univention-printer-assignment package make sure that the UCR-variable ''repository/online/unmaintained'' is set on yes. To activate this variable over the grafical interface, you have to search in the Univention Directory Registry for '''*unmaintained*''' and set the '''repository/online/unmaintained''', just by clicking at the variable and change the previous entry to yes. The package can be installed after activating the repository:

To enable the anonymous ldap search in the command shell, the following command is needed

Another feature of the '''univention-printer-assigment''' package is the removeall variable. If this variable is set and the '''printer-assignment.vbs''' will be executed all printers in the network will be deledet from the printer overview and new printers will be added in the printer overview.<br>

Univention Directory Registry for '''*assignment*''' and set the
 
'''printer/assignment/removeall''', just by clicking at the variable and change the previous entry to yes.<br>

'''Windows'''
 
The '''printer-assignment.vbs''' script is found in the network on the logon server in directory '''\\%LOGONSERVER%\netlogon'''. It is sufficient to execute the file as the domain admisitrator. The sorting of the printers, as well as the setting of an default printer are processed automatically.
 
 
'''Please Note:''' The univention-printer-assignment package works only correct with Windows XP (or with earlier versions) with a 32-Bit architecture. With Windows Vista (wether 32- or 64-Bit) the package don't work.
