I am receiving this error Deploying printer connection '\\server\printer' to per machine GPO 'Default Domain Policy' failed. The specified directory service attribute or value does not exist when trying to deploy printer through GPO.

Steps i have already tried is Restarting Server and creating a new GPO

My DC is a Small Business server 2003

I want to deploy my printers through GPO to all the workstations.

Any Ideas, Do i have to make my print server a DC also so it can have a updated schema?

You do not have to make the print server a DC.  However, we need more information in order to troubleshoot this.  Do you have any errors in the client eventlogs?  You may need to enable the UserEnv.log to see what is going on.  Also, if you do a gpresults /v, does it show anything in the printers configuration area?

Cheers,

you need to make sure that authincated user is allowed to the GP. you must understand that a computer is just like a user in that it has to be authinicated.  I made groups that have computers in them then I added the group to the GP that had the printer that I wanted the users at that area to get.
