Mapping Printers

Printers are supposed to be mapped automatically in labs via Group Policies in the Active Directory. Sometimes, however, they do not map automatically and in that event they need to manually be mapped. To manually map a printer in a computer lab in Coover follow the directions below:




Press the Windows and R key on the keyboard and type, "\\printers.ece.iastate.edu" in the dialog box and click OK.

Select the appropriate printer for the lab you are in and right click and select connect. For the TLA, select "CO1313bw1", "CO1313bw2" or "CO1313co".

The printer should be installed automatically.



As a reminder: Prior to printing, always ensure that the printer you have selected is the desired destination for your print job. If the group policy has not completed properly, sometimes default printers are different than those in the room.
