You do not have sufficient access to your computer to connect to the selected printer

Hi
We a Windows 2003 sp1 server which is a TS server and a backup dc.
When a user logs in they get the default printers that are loaded through the group policy fine. If they want to add a network printer it gives this error "You do not have sufficient access to your computer to connect to the selected printer". I read these solution from Microsoft http://support.microsoft.com/kb/259937/en-us but there are no local policies on a DC and it even says in the article I shouldn't get this error but I am.
I have checked the printer permissions and nothing unusual there.
If the user logs in from their normal pc they can add/remove so it doesn't seem to be anything in the user account.
Any suggestions?
Thanks
Jared

Hello altior,

Security settings on a DC are mostly higher then normal workstations, which
is good. You shouldn't use a DC as a Terminal server, so that you do not
have to lower the security on it to get users working. And as i said before,
use a member server for TS functionality.

Best regards

- Check the Default Domain Policy
- Check the Default Domain Controller Policy
- For the long run: get yourself another server and install TS on the
new server. Remove the TS role from the second DC. IT ain't good having
people logging on to a DC - even through TS.

cheers,

Florian

Thanks for the replies they lead me to the answer:

In the Default Domain Controller Policy - allow users to add printer drivers - which is set to denied on servers by default. I changed it and everyting works great now.

Hello altior,

Thanks for the feedback. BUT really think about the separate server to TS.

Best regards
