I’m re-installing quite a few machines at the moment (as customers are realising, 18 months later, that my suggestion to move from W7 to W10 was a good idea…) and by far the biggest time sink seems to be configuring printers.
I’m talking about sites where each printer is networked and is accessed directly not via a dedicated print server and where we are not running an AD domain so pushing via GPO is not an option.
It got me to thinking about print job management and tracking as well. I’ve used papercut in the past for educational establishments and played with cups years and years ago (with no real sucess). Just wondered if there was a go to open source / linux based printer tracking and management system out there.
