  • Hello Grace,

    Thank you for posting in our forum.

    According to your description, our users (they are not administrators) want to remove the network printers deployed by Group Policy on their own clients,  that is under Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers, we right-click the printer name and select “Remove device”, but will accept messages that are denied access, right?


     

    If so, and if we want to give the user permission to remove some printers on their, , we can refer to the following article: Assigning Delegated Print Administrator and Printer Permission Settings in Windows Server 2008 R2, then give our users the appropriate permissions.

    We can try the following methods steps:
    1.On the DC, open 'Print Management'.

    2.Select the path:Print Server>PC's name>Printers

    3.Select the printer that we want user have permission to remove,right-click and select "Properies".

    4.Select "Security"tab,then select specific user or group we want to give permission,and select"Manage this printer"
     



    Hope the information can be helpful. And if there is anything else we can do for you, please free feel to post in the forum.


    Best regards,
    Cynthia

  • Hi Cynthfan,

    Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately I still got the message saying "Access is denied" after I made the change.

    Please advise!

  • Hello gracey,

    We mentioned in the last reply that "Print Management" was opened on the DC.It should be noted that in our experimental environment, the DC and the print server are on the same machine.

    We need to do the above on the same machine as the print server. Is the DC and print server on the same machine in your environment? If not, try it once on the same machine as the print server.

    Hope the information can be helpful. And if there is anything else we can do for you, please free feel to post in the forum.


    Best regards,
    Cynthia

  • Cynthfan,

    Thank you for your reply. The DC and print server are on different server and we don't prefer to put them together.

    Is there a way to allow user to manage the GPO deployed printer which the printer server is not DC?

    thanks,


    Grace
