Unshared printers still showing in deployed printers in printer management 2008 r2..

As above and attached.
Ive tried adding backup printers onto another server using the same names and IP addresses.
Now one server is still publishing old unshared printers in GPO.  I cannot remove them from Print mgt or GPO...

I am in the middle rolling out a print server (for the second time).  The first time I did this something was mis-configured so I started from scratch.

The printers were pushed out via GPO.  When I turned the PS off, the printers went away.  Now that I rebuilt the server with the same name and same printer names the previously installed printers are showing up.

What I'm having to do is manually delete the incorrect printers from each profile.

I don't think your server is pushing the printers out, it might be the profiles are "remembering" them.

Why can't you remove them from print management or GPO?

Are you getting an error message?

Sorry, under deployed printers its showing the old ones that dont exist anymore.
Think i might need to unshare them all and start again?

Glad it worked out. That is weird that the printers were still showing up as deployed.
