    GPP Printer Not Deploying

    I've a GPO with three shared printers being deployed through GPP. Two are applying fine but the third one is failing with Event 4098, Group Policy Printers:

    The users "Office Photocopier" preference item in the "Map printers to users..." Group Policy Object did not apply because it failed with error code "0x80070705 The printer driver is unknown." The error was surpressed.
    This is working OK on other computers (i.e. the server driver cache is serving properly) and the printer has been added manually to the problematic computer (with a different printer name), so there should be no driver issue. The only notable thing is the driver is "Generic 25C-2/25C-2P VPS".

    I Googled around for a while but didn't come up with anything.

    It's recommended to have both 64Bit and 32Bit drivers installed on your Print Server (2008 or 2008 R2). They have also need to be the same language and version, for example:

    PCL5 version 1.0.0.0 (32Bit)
    PCL5 version 1.0.0.0 (64Bit)

    PCL6 version 1.2.0.0 (32Bit)
    PCL6 version 1.2.0.0 (64Bit) etc...

  3. Thanks to Michael from:

    Check the 'Security' on your deployed printers. I've found that 'Manage this printer' needs to be allowed.

    Hi

    Have a look at Deploying Printers by Using Group Policy and check the settings to allow the client to install drivers

    Rookie mistake: I thought we had no 64 bit Windows here. Looks like this one is and I didn't have the 64 bit drivers added. Thanks guys.
