You are the desktop support technician of your company. The company’s network contains 500 client computers that run Windows Vista. You install a separate network printer for each of the five departments. You are required to enable one user from each department to configure printer permissions for other users. You also want to enable these users to manage all print jobs for their department’s printer.


Which permission should you assign to these five users to perform the required tasks without granting them unnecessary permissions?



  1. Assign the Print permission to each of the five users for their department’s printer.
  2. Assign the Manage documents permission to each of the five users for their department’s printer.
  3. Assign the Manage printers permission to each of the five users for their department’s printer.
  4. Assign the Special permissions permission to each of the five users for their department’s printer.

Answer:
C. Assign the Manage printers permission to each of the five users for their department’s printer.


Tutorial:
You should assign the Manage printers permission to each of the five users for their department’s printer. Windows offers four types of printer permissions: Print, Manage documents, Manage printers and Special permissions. These permissions determine which printer properties can be managed by a user, such as allowing or removing access to the printer and determining who can manage documents or properties for the printer. The printer permissions can be assigned to an individual user who uses the printer or to a group of users with the same type of user account. By default, members of the Administrators group on a computer have permission to manage printers. The Manage printers permission enables a user to rename, delete, share and choose preferences for the printer. This permission also enables a user to choose printer permissions for other users and to manage all print jobs for a printer.


You should not assign the Print permission to each of the five users for their department’s printer. The Print permission allows users to print and cancel, pause or restart their own print jobs. The Print permission does not allow users to configure printer permissions for other users and to manage all print jobs for their department’s printer.


You should not assign the Manage documents permission to each of the five users for their department’s printer. The Manage documents permission is useful when you want to enable a user to manage all print jobs that are waiting in the print queue, including print jobs from other users. The Manage documents permission enables a user to configure printer permissions for other users.


You should not assign the Special permissions permission to each of the five users for their department’s printer. This permission allows a user to change the printer owner. By default, the person who installs the printer is the printer Creator Owner and is given all printer permissions. The Special permissions permission will grant additional permissions to users than required to perform the task in this scenario.
