GPO printer preferences - Driver settings
We're deploying printers for one of our sites via Group Policy preferences and (Computer Configuration -> Preferences -> Control Panel Settings -> Printers) and the printers are being deployed just fine (via TCP/IP). However, we recently replaced on of the printers being deployed in this GPO and had to update the driver (a Xerox WC 7435). The client machines updated with the correct driver, however, the driver defaults/printer preferences did not push with the new driver from the server the printer is shared from. This isn't a huge deal over all, but the issue is annoying banner pages are enabled on the client machines while they are disabled in the printer defaults and printer preferences on the print server. I've set the action to this printer to "update", but that did not resolve the issue. Has anyone else ran into this? I was toying with the idea of changing the action to replace, but didn't necessarily want the printer connection to be removed/readded at each startup. Should I deploy the shared printers via User Configuration for the desired result instead? Any help is appreciated.
