see, Ticket 2013121621002374

we should have a howto how to deploy printers using Group Policy or Group Policy Preferences.

with GPO's:

with GPP's:

If GPP's are used, it is important to set the option 

  "Run in logged-on user's security context (user policy option)"

otherwise to machine account tries to connect to the printer and that can screw up printer access controls.

We should describe the process via GPOs, not GPPs, because the latter are "tattooing" and may be hard to support.
