We have 60 printers deployed by group policy on a 2008 R2 level domain.
They are set as Group Policy Preferences in User configuration. They're all item level targeted to OUs and Security Groups containing Computers to give us the flexibility we require in our context.
At the moment, I have 57 separate policies. Most of these only contain one printer, some contain two. I set the policies up this way because I thought it would give us more flexibility... but now I think I may have been getting myself a tad confused :)
It would look cleaner in Group Policy if I only had 1 policy instead of 57. It would also allow me to add a "Delete All" with "Order 1".
My question is, how will this affect loading times etc? Are there any downsides to having 1 printer policy or is separate policies the better way to go?
