And look at these.
User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Printers\
Point and Print Restrictions >> Disable
Prevent addition of printers >> Disable
Prevent deletion of printers >> Disable
Local Computer Policies\Administrative Templates\Printers\
Allow print spooler to accept client connections >> Enable
( can also be found in the Gpo Editor. )

> But no way, when the driver is downloaded by the
> client, at the "Installing driver" step, the following error raise :
> "A POLICY IS IN EFFECT ON YOUR COMPUTER WHICH PREVENTS YOU FROM
> CONNECTING TO THIS PRINTER QUEUE"
> With the driver we use (we tried
> many differents versions), it occurs only on Samba4 print
> server (tried
> with a Windows 2012 - ok), and only with the SHARP driver
> In fact,
> with others drivers brands, for instance Kyocera, point and
> print works
> perfectly. Driver is downloaded and printer successfully installed. So
> my guess is that Point and print is not the cause. BUT the
> message above
> tells about a policy, and furthermore it probably appeared
> after a bunch
> Windows updated. That's confusing.
> Does anybody already encountered
> and solved this ?
> Thanks !
