Server 2012 Print Management - Printers no longer Deployed?

We have a server 2012 R2 environment with a dedicated print server.  When deploying printers using "Deploy with Group Policy", the existing deployments normally appear after a few seconds.  This changed a few weeks ago.

Existing deployments no longer display in the deployment dialog and the "Deployed Printers" sections shows only recently deployed printers.   It seems that Print Manager is no longer reading existing GPO's.  With close to 1000 printers in our system this is a huge problem.

Does anyone have any ideas?  I suspect a recent update is the cause.

There was an update a short while back that stopped Group Policies working if they were filteres to a specific group of users.

Solution is to update your policy
Simple solution is you should add the Active Directory computer account to security group or give Domain computers group / Authenticated Users to read permission to fix this issue for all the domain joined computers, steps are
Open GPMC.MSC (Group Policy Management Console)
Select the policy
on right site of the console, select delegation
Add the Authenticated Users and select read Permissions
Add the Domain Computers and select read permissions
