I'm looking for detail around the exact permissions to allow an otherwise
unprivileged domain user to manage all aspects of printing on a print server.
The server is Windows 2003 R2 and is a domain member but not a domain
I've tried adding a domain user to the server's local 'Printer Operators'
group. When the user logs in and runs the 'Add Printer' wizard they cannot
add a local printer, but can add a network connected printer. I'm guessing
that they wouldn't be able to add a port either.
Is there some additional permission(s) I can grant the user (or a group) or
is it the case that to fully administer printers (add printers, manage
printers, manage print jobs and delete printers) you need to allow membership
of the local administrators group on the server ?
Thanks in advance for your assistance,
