    I think your point 6 sums up what I have found exactly! I was getting all sorts of random errors, but the main one was the the specified port is invalid one.

    I'm following your route and using scripts, but I am using a logon script instead with loopback processing. It speeds up the machine startup time a bit, but also ensures that the script fires as late as is possible, maximising the chances of it being successful. I also have a logoff script to delete the queues again at log off, so that print queues removed from the server are not left hanging around for ever and ever.

    HI Guys,

    I know this is a bit late, but I found with the specified port is unknown error even a script didnt always deploy the printer. I eventually found a microsoft hotfix Kb2748246.

    and here is a link on how to deploy hotfix Kb2748246 as its not in the a wsus catalogue !!! Grrr

    I spent ages trying to solve this problem so im hoping this post might help some people.

  3. Thanks to Chunks_ from:

    Thanks Chunks, i'll give this a go when I get a chance. Had been driving us nuts in the past until I changed to scripts.
