Created GPO: Corp-Printers

Under Computer Configuration --> Deployed Printers --> defined (2) printers served by another DC (Server 2008 Datacenter)

Because clients are all XP SP2
Under Computer Configuration --> Windows Settings --> Scripts (Startup/Shutdown) --> Startup --> defined "PushPrinterConnections.exe" with Parameter "-log"

RSOP indicates policy is being applied to client...

End result: No printers deployed.

Turns out I created the GPO on our new Windows Server 2008 Datacenter DC (x64), using the 64-bit version of PushPrinterConnections.exe.

Naturally 32-bit XP SP2 clients didn't like it. So I used the PushPrinterConnection.exe from a 32-bit server & the printers deployed successfully.
