GPO – GPP Printer per Computer’S 0x80070005 error


Today I wanted to talk about a small bug you might encounter if you do printers GPP per computers. Such GPP create a local printer port, usually TCPIP, but need a printer share to set the driver and option.

The error is not documented much, but it’s the error 0x800700005.

That error is caused by a lack of security for the computer account to access the printer’s share for the initial setup. I seen that case on customers where the printer share are more restricted between users.

To resolve the issue you need to set back everyone into the printer security, like shown there;

Make sure that everyone is there (and CREATOR OWNER too)

That change should make your GPO work
