Hi Folks ,

I was given a task at work to add a global group to 100’s of printer queue’s . I knew I wanted to use powershell to do this task but was unsure how to permission printers . I came across this utility (Subinacl.exe) that I knew about but didn’t think it permissioned printer queue’s . It took just one line to accomplish this task . In minutes I permssioned 100’s of queue’s and my manager was very happy with the result .

So here is the one line :

gwmi -class Win32_Printer -comp ServerName | %{$_.Name} | % { subinacl.exe /printer \\ServerName\$_ /grant=DomainName\GroupName=F}

F means Full Control…

You can also use M for Manage Documents or P for Print .

This is a good example also of Powershell’s ability to work with command line utilities .

I thought this was cool and a super time saver . If you have any questions please comment below and I will respond pronto 🙂
