We are seeing some of our printers on our Microsoft Windows Server 2012 strangely disappear under print management. The user is still showing the printer on their computer, but it's gone on the server list. To fix this, we have to re-add the printer to the server. We don't have anything special turned on in the group policy like printer pruning. Has anyone found an answer to this?
Thanks

Update those printer's drivers. Updated drivers usually fix this issue.
