As you can see, pushprinterconnections is in the logon script.

I tried login with a different user on the same PC, same result - no printer.

The GP is the: Domain Default Policy. It's security settings are for: Authenticated Users enter image description here

  • even that the -log settings is set on the script, I can't find any log PPCuser/PPCMachine in it's corresponding directory. enter image description here

What am I missing?

First place of research when something breaks with group policy or similar: Event Log on the local client.

Things that usually break printers via GPO and/or logon scripts:

  • Untrusted driver (as in not WHQL-certified). You have to manually deploy the driver(s) as administrator before pushing out printers.
  • Conflicting device. Are you sure that there are no local printers installed with the same name?

Things that usually break everything that has to do with logon scripts:

  • Incorrect time on the local client. Make sure it's in sync with the domain (net time /set). Also make sure that it's in the correct timezone.

Perhaps either the script or the exe isn't visible to the computer executing the policy, for whatever reason. The GPO seems fine. Checked the event log for Policy errors or tried a traced log on?
