[Samba] KB3163912 breaks Point and Print Restrictions GPO settings for non-packaged-aware printer drivers

Has anyone found a workaround for Samba print servers?


If I set the GPOs as stated on the WIKI (https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Setting_up_Automatic
_Printer_Driver_Downloads_for_Windows_Clients) Windows 10 refuses to install the driver with
"a policy forbids the installation" (translated from german). If I remove the policy I can
install everything fine (after the security prompt). 
This all works with Windows 7 as expected.
