Why do the some of these policies complicate the XPATH expressions with the last() function?
Let's face the fact, assigning iPrint printers in iManager, especially if the users are in a different container than the iPrint Printer, can become very tedious and time consuming. First you have to wait for the browse window to choose a printer, then wait for the browse window to browse for the users or groups, and finally select all of your users. Well what if you had 5 executives that needed to have access to every Xerox Printer in the organization and these printers existed in multiple containers? Let's say there were 35 of these printers. This could take hours. I'll demonstrate how to do it in less than 5 minutes.
