    Exclamation Print Server

    I'm pushing printers out using GPP, work fine for computers (with targetting enabled).

    When pushing out for users i get "access is denied" - the permissions on the printer has been changed, "everyone" removed. Specified user security group added (with full permission to manage the printer) / domain computers added to the printer.

    When user logs in - no printer is added and the following appears in the event logs....

    The user '' preference item in the '[USER] Default User Policy' Group Policy object did not apply because it failed with error code '0x80070005 Access is denied.' This error was suppressed.


    Help appreciated!

    There's a group policy setting to do with allowing users to install printers, it's somewhere in the security settings I think. That may be your problem. My network uses a script to map the printers insted, but it didn't work properly until this policy was changed so it could be the same issue for you maybe?

    Hi good suggested, yet after setting the "Devices: Prevent users from installing printer drivers" to disabled I still get access is denied. It suggests permissions over the printer are incorrect - but when I look at effective permissions for a user within the Security Group which has access to the printer - it seems fine! Confussed.

    Are your drivers fully signed by MS? I am having this issue and i've narrowed it down to the Toshiba copier drivers which are not signed and Windows won't let you install unsigned drivers at all on Win 7. Try changing, for a test, teh driver to something random built into it, say a HP LaserJet 4100 which is built into 2008 R2 and deploy it then, if it works with the same permissions etc then it could be that problem

    Isn't there also a GP setting to allow non signed drivers to be installed by users ??

    I think also there is a setting you need to set to tell it what server your 'allowed' to install printers from.

    Users can search the domain and add the printers manually - I am attempting to add the printers during logon (using group policy preferences)! This seems to work for the computer but not for the user!

    Windows 7 X64 will not allow any unsigned drivers without brutal murdering it into submission so if your on 64 bit clients then you could be suffering there, I seem to have found that to my cost, so now trying to find an alternative newer driver that is certified.

    Andy,

    I have suffered simialar problems in the past. Additional to the things that you have already tried, try setting the print processor to winprint under printer properties -> advanced -> print processor.

    Hi Matt, this is something I've already addressed - yet printers still don't seem to work when deploying to a user :/

    For Computers
    Comp Conf -> Admin Templates -> Printers -> Point and Print restrictions = Disabled
    and for Users
    User Config -> Admin Templates -> Control Pannel/Printers -> Point and Print restrictions = Disabled
