I get this error Result: Failure (Error Code: 0x800706be) when I try to add printers with GPO. I am doing this thru User Config/Prefences/Control Panel Settings/Printers for OU group. When I do gpupdate on the client to update this policy printers and faxes disappear and I got Result: Failure (Error Code: 0x800706be) error on gpresult.

DO you have the required driver installed on the PC for the printer you're trying to install ?

Yes - I can add the printer manually when logged as a user. I am trying to set up default printer this up for our student lab computers when students login.

Can you do a report on the machine, or ideally a RSOP to test if the policy is being correctly applied, that would be my first step....i understand its generating an error, but it would be useful to check if the policy application, or its non-application is the reason for the printers absence.

In RSOP i dont see preference GPO settings. All other GPS are applied without any problems.

I am using this tutorial to add a printer

its not strictly what you asked for, but i'd generally look at doing this via a login script, something like this will do the job....

I've heard nothing but negatives about default printer selection in GPO.

You running 2008 servers btw ?
