Group Policy Preferences not applying printer

    Question

  • Hi Guys,

    We are currently experiencing an issue with out Windows Server 2012 R2 Terminal Servers were they are not mapping the printer which is assigned under Group Policy Preferences. The printer is assigned to the user, and maps perfectly fine on our Windows 10 stations but not on the Terminal Servers. I have included a copy of the error message that we are seeing in the Event Viewer in the hopes this might help.

    The user 'Follow-You' preference item in the All Users {F9EEAB73-F0A5-41F3-903E-53B034BA8980}' Group Policy Object did not apply because it failed with error code '0x80070057 The parameter is incorrect.' This error was suppressed.

    Follow-You
    MAG All Users
    {F9EEAB73-F0A5-41F3-903E-53B034BA8980}

    0x80070057 The
    parameter is incorrect.

    The policy was Originally created by a Windows 10 Engineer PC, I wondering if might have something to do with it.

    If I try and map the printer by hand (Control Panel > Hardware > Printers and Devices > Add Printer or by browsing to the server and double clicking on the printer), the printer maps perfectly fine with no errors and I am able to use it. I can do this as a normal user and as an Administrator.

    Any suggestions or ideas as to why this might be happening are welcome.

    >>>Do you want to assign printer for terminal servers?

    If yes, you could configure Printer Redirection in GPO to achieve your goal.

    The path of the setting:Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\ Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host

    For more information about how to set the setting, you could refer to the article below.
