VCAP-DTA – Objective 2.5 – Configure Location Based Printing

So we come to the final objective in section 2, configuring location based printing. In essence, this is harnessing the abilities of ThinPrint to enable printing from the View environment, using physical printers located nearby to the end users. There are three measured skills and abilities in this section, and are listed below.

  • Configure location-based printing using a Group Policy Object – To start with, you need to register the ThinPrint DLL on an Active Directory server to enable the functionality within MMC. To do this, go to any of your Connection Servers and find the file TPVMGPoACmap.dll. There are both 32 bit and 64 bit versions. This file is located under C:Program FilesVMwareVMware ViewServerextrasGroupPolicyFilesThinPrint.
    • Copy TPVMGPoACmap.dll to the Active Directory server (choose the appropriate version, 32/64 bit)
    • Register the DLL by running regsvr32 “C:TPVMGPoACmap.dll” from a command prompt
