Hello, I am using Group Policy for a number of things, but have found 2 items which are working intermittently.
Problem #1) Using Group Policy To Deploy Printers
This normally works like a charm. Set up printers on 3 print servers, running Windows 2012 Server and 2012/R2 Deploy them thru GP. However, sometimes printers do not get deployed to every user (about 100). Last week I added a new printer to all 3 printer servers, deployed it thru group policy. (Have special GPOs for printer deployment for different work areas. Works great.) Printer shows up in GPO and Print Management as deployed. I do a forced GP Update from the DC, plus when the user logs on it also does a GPUPDATE /FORCE, so everyone who should have the printer configured does. Not this time or intermittently in the past. Most users have the printer configured on their PCs however, have a small number of users do not have the printer configured and I cannot seem to make it get configured. Rebooted PCs, more GPUPDATES, but nothing will make this printer show up in their DEVICES AND PRINTERS
Problem #2) Interactive Login Message > Message Title For Users Attempting To Login
I had a title for years which was "Calvary Temple Christian Center" We changed our name, so I changed the title. The title change appears on some PCs and some servers and some domain controllers.
I think these two problems are related. I have forced replication between the primary DC and secondary DCs, but it did not resolve the issue.
How can I get GP updated on everything, everytime? Please advise. Thanks.
