Server 2012 R2 not deploying printers properly Revised
Posted on 2016-09-27
I have 3 servers: adc3, adc5, adc6
adc5 has windows server 2012 R2 and currently configured to deploy printers. Printer management, DNS and active directory on it. DHCP role has been removed.
On adc5 the print management has been working successfully for about 1 year. I recently added adc6 as the primary domain controller and transferred the FSMO roles to it.
I recently wiped the printers from the server and have re-installed them and marked them to be deployed by group policy.
After scouring tutorials and effectively rebuilding the Print management portion of the server, I still have about 1/3 of the users have their printers installed by the server and about 2/3 do not.
I don't think it is the server configuration since some computers are getting them. It is not based on the OS because some windows 7 and 10 are getting them and some are not.
It is not a matter of time for group policy to update because I left one of the workstations logged on all night and they never appeared.
Is there something on the workstation that could block the server?
Am I missing something else?
