What do have the "action" set as?  Try setting it to update and see if this works for you.

I am not using a GPP.

Printer is being mapped under

User Configuration > Windows Settings > Printer Connections

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Keep it as a printer preference! And be sure that you don't check Apply Once and Do Not Reapply
