MyQ DDI Introduction
Main Reasons for MyQ DDI Installation
For security or other reasons, it is not possible to share the printer drivers installed on the server to the network.
Computers are not permanently available on the network, and it is necessary to install the driver as soon as it is connected to the domain.
Users don’t have sufficient rights (admin, power user) to install or connect the shared print driver themselves, or to run any installation script.
Automatic printer driver port reconfiguration in case of MyQ server failure is required.
Automatic change of default driver settings is required (duplex, color, staple etc.).
MyQ DDI Installation Prerequisites
PowerShell – Minimal version 3.0
Updated system (latest service packs etc.)
Run script as administrator/SYSTEM in case of domain install
Possibility to run scripts or bat files on the server/computer
Installed and correctly configured MyQ Server
Administrator’s access to a domain server with OS Windows 2000 Server and higher. Possibility to run Group Policy Management.
Microsoft signed printer driver(s) compatible with network connected printing devices.
MyQ DDI Installation Process
Configure the MyQDDI.ini file.
Test the MyQ DDI installation manually.
Create and configure a new Group Policy Object (GPO) using Group Policy Management.
Copy the MyQ DDI installation files and printer driver files to the Startup (for computer) or Logon (for user) script folder (in case of domain install).
Assign a test computer/user to the GPO and check automatic installation (in case of domain install).
Setup GPO rights to run MyQ DDI on the required group of computers or users (in case of domain install).
