    Hello JBIT-299,

    According to your description, the issue seems related to printer issue.

    After installing updates, client may not connect to printer server to printer. This used to be a known issue. For 0x11B issue, we could modify the registry below under client and printer server.

    Client:
    reg add HKLM\ Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Printers\PointAndPrint /v RestrictDriverInstallationToAdministrators /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
    reg add HKLM\ System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print /v RpcAuthnLevelPrivacyEnabled /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    Then restart printer spooler service

    Printer server:

    reg add HKLM\ System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print /v RpcAuthnLevelPrivacyEnabled /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    Then restart printer spooler service. Try to connect again.

    Meanwhile, I suggest that client and server could install the latest security update.

    Best Regards,
