I'm having an issue with an enforced Domain Policy.  Within that policy there is a setting to no allow printers installed.  In addition we have a policy to allow administrators to install printers.  However, it's seem that the domain policy is getting in the way of the allow printers install policy.  I need a way to allow the administrator account to allow printer installs.  I found this from microsoft but I don't see this in my GPO templates:

To allow administrators to override device installation restriction policies


      Open Group Policy Management Editor.

      In the navigation pane, open the following folders: Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, System, Device Installation, and Device Installation Restrictions.

      In the details pane, double-click Allow administrators to override Device Installation Restriction policies.

      Click Enabled.

      Click OK to save your settings.

Can anyone help me out?
