SBS 2011 Win7 PC's cannot change Printer port

I just installed a SBS 2011 server and for some reason the windows 7 machines has the printer port settings grayed out no matter the login (admin or not) It seems like a policy from the server, If i login as a local user i can change ports, Also when logged into the domain i cant make any ODBC changes.  If this is a policy issue how do i fix it?


Thank you

Is it possible to disable the GPO for all workstations connecting to the SBS2011 domain?

Im assuming you have a network printer, installed it on the server then shared it out.
You shared it out by simply selecting sharing or did you install the print server role and push it out via Group Policy?

What are you trying to accomplish? You have a single printer but need the port on each PC to be different?  I'm not really clear on what happened and what you are trying to fix.

I have 2 issues:  After i install a new network printer (jetdirect to printer) i cannot change the port afterwards, All the other options are grayed out . Also on the same PC i have a script that setups ODBC system DSN's that will not run, not sure what the problem is there, all I know is when the pc is logged on locally these problem dont exist, log back into the sbs2011 domain and the aggravation starts.  I'm going the search for a registry modification the block the GPO
