  • Group Policy - Point & Print

    Hi,

    I hope this has been posted in the correct place!

    I am starting to loose hair rapidly. We have a test domain in a showroom environment and had been playing with deploying printer connections via Group Policy. All was good and working well...... or at least we thought so.....

    What we failed to realise was that the printers were being deployed exactly as thought when you were logged in as a domain admin, however login as a domain user and the policy does not apply!

    I have went over and over and over the GPO settings including Point & Print object set not to prompt for new drivers or updated connections. I have also went over and over the deployed printer object.

    Same thing each time, give the user elevated rights and hey presto the printer deploys. Strip the rights away and gpupdate and the printer connection disappears again!

    I have also run gpresult with the domain user logged in and it shows the created policy object under the 'Applied Group Policy Objects' section!!!

    AAAAARGGHHHH

    please help!
