Problem deploying printer through GP

Posted on 2012-08-30

I have two DCs, one is Windows 2003 32 bit (DC1) and the other is 2008 R2 64 bit (DC2).  I am trying to deploy printers on DC2 to a Windows 7 64bit machine.  When I run gpresult I can see that it is applying the correct GP but when I restart the client it still does not install the printer.  I can install it by navigating to the servers and double clicking the printer but my goal is to get it to install via the GP.  I don;t see any errors about group policy in the event log.

Could it be somehow looking at DC1 when trying to install the printer?  DC1 does not have the printer installed.
