I am testing mapping printers via group policy preferences. I have a test GPP setup that is working flawlessly. I am mapping printers using ILT to a security group with computers in it and loopback processing enabled. This is a test policy only at this point. I created a new GPP with the same basic parameters, but with a different policy name, a different shared printer and a different security group. It is setup identical to the test policy in that it is a user side policy linked to the Users OU, with ILT to a security group with the computer I want the policy assigned to in that group.
Well, it is not working. By that I mean, the printer is not mapped to the assigned computer. I can map the printer through my test policy just fine. But when I enable the second policy, it just does not assign the same printer to the computer?
Is there some type of waiting period on group policy or something? I remember when I first created my test policy, it didn't seem to work at first, then it started working and working as it should? This is really weird to me. This is a Windows 2008 network with Win 7 clients.
