Group Policy deployed printers are not being deployed

Last Modified: 2015-08-03
Deployed printer with GPO settings  - User configuration->Preferences->Control Panel Settings->Printers
I also set the point and print restrictions gpo setting to:
•When installing drivers for a new connection: Do not show warning or elevation prompt
•When updating drivers for an existing connection: Show warning only
GPO was verified as being applied with GPRESULT /R
But not seeing the printers, I get the following in event viewer any ideas?:
Log Name:      Application
Source:        Group Policy Printers
Date:          7/29/2015 10:29:25 AM
Event ID:      4098
Task Category: (2)
Level:         Warning
Keywords:      Classic
User:          SYSTEM
Computer:      MCCNETWKS01.mcc.internal
The user 'BrotherL8250CDN' preference item in the 'MCC Printer Mapping {AA88077C-FBE0-43D2-B50B-9BBBF97EAAF7}' Group Policy object did not apply because it failed with error code '0x80070bcb The specified printer driver was not found on the system and needs to be downloaded.' This error was suppressed.
