I'm in a test environment and I'm using Windows Server 2008 R2 to try and push a printer down to a XP workstation.
I've deployed the printer using GPO. I've enabled the -log setting so I can see how the deployment goes. On the XP workstation itself the log shows the following:
... Logging enabled by command line switch.
... Logging started at 8:30:03 AM 4/19/2010.
... Found and applied this GPO: Deployed Printer.
... Found Deployed Printer Connection setting \\PPPS-PS\MS-TechOff-E240n in Active Directory.
... Failed to search local GPO. Access is denied.
... There are no connections to remove.
... Failed to deploy per user connection \\PPPS-PS\MS-TechOff-E240n. Access is denied.
I'm logging in as the Domain Administrator (for testing purposes) and as you can see above, I'm being "Access is denied".
Where is this "authentication" being pulled from?
