  • Printer setting will randomly choose another default printer when logged  back in.  EvntView - error code '0x80070534 No mapping between account names and security IDs was done.' This error was suppressed.

  • I will assume they are network printers and not locally attached.

    How are they deployed in group policy script or preference?

    If they are applied by preference you need to considerer the following.

    Preferences are applied one after the other. If several printers are applied and none are selected as default within the preference the last printer added will be the default.

    If you want to apply several printers but allow the end user to select there default and this to remain following a logoff ensure you are using the update preference, a replace preference will enforce any printer application and default settings "replace" any changes made by the end user

    I'm not sure the event log provided is relevant to this scenario.

    I hope this helps :-)
