    Warning - HP Printers and Group Policy Preferences

    Just a heads up for any of you who donít know.
    There seems to be a problem with the HP print drivers and GPP.
    If you deploy your printers using GPP and start to notice slow login times this could be why.

    Interactive Services Detection in Application Event Log when Mapping HP Printers

    You will notice Interactive Services Detection logs in event viewer and quite a dramatic increase in login times. Might be a fix for it, Iíve not looked a great deal yet.

    Hereís how much it effected my login times.
    All times are from the login screen until the desktop loads

    4 printers mapped with GPP = 1 Minute 20 seconds
    3 printers mapped with GPP = 1 Minute 20 seconds
    2 Printers = 47 seconds
    1 Printer = 28 seconds
    No printers = 7 seconds
    Printers mapped using logon scripts = 9 seconds

    As you can see it really did add a lot of time on. Bit of a shame, because GPP was nice and easy to manage printer. Will stick with scripts for now and keep the fast login times until I find a fix

    @tbd: disable SNMP in the drivers for the Xerox machines.

    Isn't it just the Universal driver that causes issues ?

    It's been an issue with the UPD for years, but I've seen it in other HP drivers too since then. It wouldn't surprise me at all if other brands had similar problems, sometimes it feels like nobody knows how to write a printer driver that actually complies with the Microsoft standards.
