windows 2003 domain with roaming profiles "adding printer" issue
Posted on 2011-04-26
This is the oddest thing I have had happen yet. Recently I was told to delete the common AD accounts "IE = teacher1a, teacher1b, etc" Then when the IT directors plan totally fell apart and didnt work, which didnt surprise me, he told me to re-make those accounts and re-attach their email and put back to normal. Their home folders were re-added successfully and their email mailboxes were attached successfully also.
Here is the odd issue, some, but not all, cannot re-add printers to their accounts. Now I am running roaming profiles, which shouldnt be an issue. Half can run a simple batch script and re-add all their printers, but half get an error that says they do not have local permissions. I have checked the computers that work and the local permissions are no different than the ones that do not work. The security is the same on all machines in AD as well.
What could I be missing in order to simply have all the accounts be able to add printers? They are all running Windows XP SP.3 and my domain is a windows 2003 domain.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
