Trusted Printer


  • In a Windows Server 2008 R2 AD Domain

    single domain | single forest

    Print Server Cluster

    (2) Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise

    Client Group Policy settings:

    1. Computer Configuration/Policies/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/Security Options

    Devices: Prevent users from installing printer drivers [disabled]

    2. Computer Configuration && User Configuration-

    Policies/Administrative Templates/Printers | Point and Print Restrictions


    FQDN of name space and the 2 nodes

    do not show prompts for installing and updating

    Not all the printers give issues. Installing new printers are fine as far as we know.

    Some printers prompt if you trust the source.

    a) users just agrees and update is fine

    b) users get asked for admin credentials

    c) users agrees and fails with error that it is not trusted

    Any insight is appreciated
