Server Printer Issues

Windows Server 2008R2

I am not sure why but recently every time we login we need to re add the printers.

What other info do you need?

Thanks.

Are you implementing the Print and Document Services Role to share this printer? If so, are you deploying the printer via GPO?

Perhaps you are installing printers per user instead of per computer?

This sequence will install a network printer and make it available to all users on a computer:

rundll32 printui.dll PrintUIEntry /ga /n"\\server\printer"
net stop "print spooler"
net start "print spooler"

Please take a look to the windows event log to see if there is any error or warning related to the spooler service.

It was the software causing issues.  Needed to make some changes in setup.
