GPP Printer deploy

    Question

  • Created a GPO which is successfully installing printers to Windows 7 & Windows 10 PCs via \\printers\%PrinterShare%

    However the printers are not installing to our WS 2008 RemoteApp server.

    "GPresult /R" shows the Printer GPO is applied as does GPO modelling. 

    "GPresult -H gpresult.html" show no issues with any GPO, shows the Printer GPO applying without error. 

    "Group Policy" event in Eventvwr shows GPP applied successfully.

    However the printers are not installed.

    I can browse to the print server via SMB and connect to the printers without issue using \\printers\%PrinterShare%.

    I enabled GPO printer logging with trace and events set to info/warning/error but there are no additional info in Eventvwr system nor application logs and no trace files are created.

    Any ideas?

  • Hi,
    Please check if there are other GPOs or script to delete the printers from that server, you could also use group policy report to view the details by running gpresult /h command.
    In addition, please make sure you have the correct drivers installed on that server.

  • Hi Wendy,

    There is no GPO nor script to delete the printers.

    I can add the printers via the share manually, if log off and on the printers remain, printer drivers are installed from print server. 

    GPresult /H shows the printer GPO applying.
