Second set of group policy printers not being applied.

Hi,

I'm trying to deploy a test printer to a test user. I have a set of printers that is already working and being applied under the title Printer - Grand Rapids. The Test Printer policy I set up is not deploying a random printer that I want deployed. I did a group policy result on the machine and it's not applying it. Does anyone have any idea why it's not deploying like my first Printer-Grand rapids policy?

From what I see you have configured at least the GPO correctly.  Have you checked the permissions and who the policy applies to. If you are deploying this GPO based on group membership, have you checked to make that the group is added to the AD user Objects?

The printers that are correctly deploying have Authenticated Users as the applied group and nothing else. I have not added Authenticated Users as a group to my test Policy because I want to start adding groups for people to get certain printers. The test user has full control. I have a feeling that if I added Authenticated users it would start working.

I have a feeling you are correct.. I would create a test OU and move a single object into that ou and apply that policy with Authenticated users.

Yep It added it when I added Authenticated Users. I need to be able to just add a group so that every printer at a location isn't being applied to every user.

Excellent Good to hear! So at this point it should be something as easy as just creating the group membership and adding users and then applying the GPO to a test OU

I added Authenticated Users to only the delegates tab and test group to security filtering and it is working! Thanks.
