Have a working print server (2008 R2) but can't add new drivers

I had some difficulty adding printers initially to my print servers but got them set up and promoted them to domain controllers.  I need to update some drivers but neither server will let me.  I get an error message Operation cannot be completed 0x00000002.  I have turned off UAC, turned on the firewall and even demoted the dc on one of them to no avail.  I am logged in as the domain admin, which is the same account I used to set them up initially.

Has to be driver. Have you tried installing on a client? Could be a driver issue. I would re-download driver.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

In this case I'm trying to update the 64 bit drivers.

Odd. Usually the error code points to an issue with 32-bit drivers going on 64-bit server

I'm working on the server itself.  I have tried updating from my Windows 7 desktop but it fails too.  The Windows Firewall needed to be turned on to add the printers in the first place.  We have a GPO that turns it off.  I have turned it back on locally but still fails.

Have you tried removing printer then installing with new driver

I can't add the driver by itself either.  I can't add a new printer as well.

I did try adding another printer with a different driver and it installed.  The Lexmark printing solution appears to be junk.

Thanks!
