Issues adding TCP/IP Printer with Group Policy


  • I have been trying to add a TCP/IP Printer using group policy, User Preferences. I can add a HP Laserjet 4600 Printer but I'm not able to add the second printer a Canon iRC4580. It keeps coming up with issues stating "The object selected does not match the type of destination source. Select again" I have read through multiple tech forums on this error and I have tried unlisting the printer and listing it again in the directory. I have also tried renaming it to a short name without spaces. neither of these have resolved the issue. I have also tried creating a new printer from scratch for the canon and this doesn't resolve it either.

    Anyone out there who can help.

    Windows 2012 R2

    Canon iRC4580 PCL6 driver (64bit)

    HP Colour LaserJet 4600 PCL driver (64bit)
