have a Windows Server 2008 R2 print server. I am having issues with user accounts not getting the printer added when they login.

Things that I have tried:

    Installed Printer Driver In Printer Manager
    Set Printer To Be Shared
    Set the Security Of The Printer To The Correct Group
    Added The User To The Correct Group
    Created A New GPO
    Added The Printer To The GPO (See Image)
    Added The Group To The Security Filtering
    Ran GPUPDATE /Force

I have asked the question here as well. I have also created a video on you tube going over the steps. Please click here to watch the video.

Did you run gpresult or rsop on the affected machine to see if the policy is being applied successfully?

I figured it out. On the GPO under the printer. I needed to check the box "Run in logged-in user's security context"

I never would have figured it out, if it wasn't for that advice about gpresult.
