Redeploy same printer driver version using GPO


  • Hi all,

    Printers are hosted on a dedicated print server running Windows Server 2008 SP2.  Printers are deployed with GP.

    Situation is that periodically my print drivers are getting corrupted for some reason (usually after a Windows update on the client).  The Win clients then cannot print at all.  Previously, I had to remove the GP deployed printer, and re-added it using a different name, with the same version driver (it's a Canon with B2 imagepass controller).  That worked just fine.  But I don't want to have to keep removing and redeploying the printers.  I would love to know a way to force push the driver for reinstallation... any ideas how to do that?  Is there some way to change the driver version to fool the server into redeploying the driver?
