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.

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.

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

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

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

Thanks!
