I am having issues getting XP SP3 machines to connect to a network printer. I have a 2K8 print server where the printer is installed. (It prints fine from the server) I have multiple drivers installed for 64 bit and 32 bit OS's.
The printer is also deployed via GPO, all machines are in the OU that the GPO is linked to.
Windows 7 machines get mapped and can print without issue. However, the XP machines dont map at all. If i try to manually map the printer, it will map and install but then it wont print. As soon as you try to submit a test page you get the erro: Test page failed to print.
So, in short, I cant get the XP machines to map to the printer being pushed by a GPO. And then if I map to the printer manually, it installs but cant print.
However, if I choose to setup a local priner, assign it a TCPIP port and install the same driver, it works fine.
