Wem Filter question

Question

Afternoon

 

A client of the company I work for requires a fairly complex printing configuration.

 

Their XenApp 1912 (Published desktop) farm is split between two UK datacentres. (Datacentre A and Datacentre B)

 

In each datacentre is a print server with the exact same print devices (not failover clustered as on a VMware solution)
 

The company has over 100 offices with at least one printer in each location.
 

The manager here wants the printers to be processed depending on which office you are in, - this I can do by applying a subnet filer on the clients ips.

but

He also wants the correct datacentre print server,

i.e. if you login to server A in datacentre A he wants to print to print server A

and the same for:

if you login to server B in datacentre B he wants to print to print server B

 

As you can only apply one filter i.e. either the client ip address for the offices or the computer ip  for the print server, I'm not sure how I can apply both these rules?

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

 

Richard

Shouldn't be too complex, example below if i am understanding correctly

 

Two Printer Actions

PrintServer1\Printer1

PrintServer2\Printer1

 

Two Filter Rules containing the IP Address Match Condition - Subnet would be VDA subnets in the appropriate DC and the Client IP Range (Site based requirement). Filter Rules work on an AND methodology. You can get funky with conditions to introduce OR capability based on the condition set

Rule 1: IP Address Match and Client IP Match A

Condition = IP Address Match (VDA Subnet for local print Server)

Condition = Client IP Address Match (Endpoint Range Per Site)

 

Rule 2: IP Address Match and Client IP Match B

Condition = IP Address Match (VDA Subnet for local print Server)

Condition = Client IP Address Match (Endpoint Range Per Site)

 

Assign Printers to a Group, and use the appropriate Filter Rule

Group1 = PrintServer1\Printer1 Filter Rule: Subnet and Client IP Match A

Group1 = PrintServer2\Printer1 Filter Rule: Subnet and Client IP Match B

 

Set WEM to delete printers on logon and enforce filter processing

 

Result should be:

if you come from client site A (Client IP range) AND you land in a VDA subnet in Site A, you will map Printer1 from Print server 1

if you come from Client Site B (Client IP range) AND you land in a VDA subnet in Site B, you will map Printer1 from Print Server 2
