  • Server 2008R2...A policy is in effect...print queue

    Hi All,

    I am getting the following error on Server 2008R2 when connecting to 1 printer in a print queue on a Win Xp(32bit) machine:

    Connect to Printer
    -----------------------
    A policy is in effect on your computer which prevents you from connecting to this print queue. Please contact your system administrator


    This is only happening when connecting to 1 printer (all other printers are fine). I have done some research and checked the following on the local computer policy

    Local Computer Policy
    User Configuration
    Administrative Templates
    Control Panel
    Printers
    Point and Print Restrictions (I have enabled this and updated group policy but to no avail so it's currently set as Not Configured)

    Local Computer Policy
    Computer Configuration
    Windows Settings
    Security Settings
    Local Policies
    User Rights Assignment
    Load and unload device drivers (I have added in the a/c I am using to connect to the print queue but to no avail).

    The printer itself is a Kyocera Task Alfa 5500i - I am using the Classic PCL6 Universal Driver. I have installed both X64 and X86 based drivers.

    Anybody have any ideas?

    Cheers

    Have you looked at permissions set directly on the print queue?

      Everyone has Print Access to all of the printers.

        Are there any GPO's being applied that would affect this??
