we would like to use ZCM printer policies to deploy printers to our workstations. Until now we use rather simple bundles that use a batch script to install the printer port and the printer itself using drivers on a network share.

I already tried to set up a test policy (TCP/IP printer) but I was unable to deploy the driver with it. So I have a few questions:

  • How can I deploy the driver (Kyocera KX driver) to the client with the policy? It came as a zip file and contains compressed files (e.g. *.dl_) as well as an OEMSETUP.inf.
  • Can I point the printer installation to the network share holding the drivers?
  • Can I pre-configure the driver so that the clients will have the correct printer settings?
  • Is there a way to mount a network printer using specific credentials?
