I'm struggling to get Group Policy Printers to deploy on our RDP server 2008 r2.

They all deploy fine the first time users logon, but hereafter no printers deploy. If I make changes to the GPO, the printers will deploy again at next logon, but after that they will disappear again. What am I doing wrong?? Any help greatly appreciated!!

Best regards, Steffen.

  • How do you deploy this? Are you using GPP? Please add some screenshots from the policy. – duenni Jun 27 '17 at 8:08

What did you expect to happen? What happened instead? What does your config look like? Do you have any log entries from the times it didn't work as expected? – Jenny D Jun 27 '17 at 8:10
  • Yes, I am using GPP - screenshots coming up... – Steffen Ostersen Jun 27 '17 at 8:33

Ok, I managed to solve this problem by adding the following option to our terminal server GPO:

COMPUTER POLICY\ADMINISTRATIVE TEMPLATES\SYSTEM\GROUP POLICY\Printers preference extension policy processing: Process even if the Group Policy objects have not changed.

Not sure if that is the best solution, but it works for now. :)
