This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Can you ping the printer using the name? If not can you do it via IP address? –  Joe Taylor Mar 7 '12 at 15:06
I'm not really sure how to go about pinging a share by name... I can ping by IP address however and browse by name if I go to start > run > \\server\printer –  Josh Mar 7 '12 at 15:29
Did you select a policy, before clickinf apply? –  Zoredache Mar 7 '12 at 15:30
Yes I created a policy named Printer Policy and as you can see from the picture it shows that it selected that policy. –  Josh Mar 7 '12 at 15:52
