Hi,

Printer server is win server 2019. AD server is win server 2012 R2.

I am trying to deploy printer but failure. GPO update not map new printer to existing user. But new user profile is ok.

Otherwise manually add shared printer is ok.

May I know 2012 AD server not available to deploy printer on 2019 server?

I have to upgrade AD server from 2012 to 2019 to make deployment succeed ?

Thanks

    Hello @WwW

    May I know 2012 AD server not available to deploy printer on 2019 server?

    To deploy printer connections using Group Policy, the Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) schema version must be at least Windows Server 2008.

    1.Do they get the update when you run gpupdate /force?
    2.Run gpresult /h report.html on the clients to check whether the GPO has been applied successfully
    3.Have you tried log them off and log back on the computer?
    4.Where did you configure this policy? Under user configuration or computer configuration?

    I would highly recommend to check below 2 articles:
