From your answers elsewhere, this is what I'm assuming your environment is:
- You have a bunch of Vista/Win7 workstations that need printers
- You do NOT have a print-server
- You want to set up printers on these workstations as direct-IP local printers
But in your question you state, "Anyone have any idea how I can get all the print drivers off my print server?" which suggests you actually DO have a print-server.
If you have a print-server based on Server 2008, and the printers being deployed are network-printers (hosted on the print-server) instead of direct-IP printers, this process is actually pretty easy. We're doing it right now to deploy printers to our computer labs without them having to be on the images.
- Set up the printer on the print-server with the correct drivers. Install the other architecture print-driver (32-bit if your server is 64-bit, and vice versa) for completeness.
- Allow it to be used by your target audience.
- Deploy the printer via GPO. You have a login-script, so you're already using GPOs.
- You might need to rearrange your computers for this, or play with WMI filters to get exactly the right computer base.
- In Print Manager, right-click the printer you want and select Deploy with GPO.
- Browse to the computer-GPO you want to deploy it to
- Select "computer objects" in the menu.
- Repeat for any other printers you want pushed to computers.
The printer will now be deployed automatically the next time the machine reboots, after it updates its GPO cache. Drivers will populate automatically in the background before the user even logs in. If you want to set the default printer, this can be done by user-side GPO preferences.
The nice part of this is that if you update the driver on a printer for some reason (they do get replaced once in a while) the updates populate to the client stations without notice to the users.
If your print-server is Server 2003, but the domain is Server 2008 or higher, this can still work but you have to do the work from a Server 2008 server, connecting remotely to the Server 2003 print-server via the Print Management tool on the 2008 server.
