    Deploying printers with group policy problems

    Hi everyone

    I have recently been tasked with getting a print server working with Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2.

    We already have a Server 2003 print server which serves printers to our XP machines.

    I have been trying to deploy printers based on rooms via Group Policy Preferences, using the item-level targeting pointing at OUs of computer rooms.

    Now I can get group policy to deploy the printers from the old Server2003 to Win7 clients with no problems, but it will not deploy the new 2008r2 printer shares no matter what I do.

    I have been through and disabled the Point and Print Restrictions for both Users & Computers as well as allowing non admin users to install drivers with the print driver setup class.

    I have managed to install both 32 and 64bit drivers on the server and it works fine if I point the GPP at the old Server2003 shares but no the new Server 2008R2 shares.

    Anyone have any ideas or see anything I've missed?

    Cheers
    James

    On the new print server did you go into Print manager and deploy the printer via policy?

    Can you manually browse to the server and connect to a printer?
