Group Policy Printer Deployment Not Working
Posted on 2014-11-11
I am trying to deploy around 50 printers through group policy. The printers won't automatically add unless they have been previously added to the machine.
We have a 2003 domain controller and 2012 print server. All of our client machines have Windows 7 64 bit OS all with UAC disabled. I have setup the group policies through group policy manager installed on a Windows 7 machine. I have setup security groups for each printer in the domain controller. I have then setup the group policy to add the printer to any user in that group.
Group Policy settings:
Action - Update
Share path - \\PRINTSRV\PRT10
Item level targeting - "The user is a member of the security group Domain\PRT10"
Check box in - "user in group"
I have disabled point and print restrictions under computer and user configuration and made sure is applied to the parent folder of the domain computers and users but it does not seem to be taking effect.
Does anyone have any ideas?
