This is the 3rd of likely too many questions about our move to SBS 2011. We did a Jeff Middleton swing and the users are up and running. But there's loads of error messages and issues I have questions about. Can you search for my username? There'll be loads of questions I need answers to and I award points quickly (if you answer quick!).
So SBS 2011 is moving away from login scripts? OK. Small group - everyone is in the same office, they all need access to printer x - a network priinter that is connected to the server and shared as \\server\x
32 and 64 bit drivers are on the machine.
how to roll it out? I saw pages on the web to add the print management roll and I did that, made a GP,etc.
On 3 new Win 7 boxes (with, shame on me? all users as local admins) it fails with '
0x80070bcb The specified printer driver was not found on the system and needs to be downloaded'. I get that in the event log and on the gp modeling.
I can manually install the printer on those boxes and install the driver with no problem. Even then, uninstall the printer, reboot and the event log still has that error / no printer mapped.
I found the pages about point and print restrictions disabled. added those to that GP and still no luck.
a) do you need to run gpupdate / force? I did that on the server and desktop and same results.
b) I tried the next day and still no luck (gp takes time to update? even though gpupdate / force should have done it.)
