Cannot discover printers

Occasional Contributor



I have had Universal Print working before, but I have reinstalled my computer last week and now, I cannot discover any cloud printer anymore. To be sure that everything is configured correctly, I have reinstalled everything, according to the Microsoft documentation.


The connector service on my printserver is working fine, registered printers appear in the Azure portal. From there, I share a printer for everyone in the organization. I have also redeployed the Universal Print Printer Provisioning service on my computer and I have configured Intune to run the 'installpolicy.cmd' script. The 'printers.csv' file appears in %appdata%\UniversalPrintPrinterProvisioning\Configuration folder and contains the right share ID and share name of the printer. My computer is AAD joined and my user account is licensed for Universal Print.


Still, I don't see any cloud printer after logging in, or searching for printers. I also do not see the link to search for cloud printers after a regular discovery.


Am I missing something? Is there some extensive logging I can take a look at?

@leoschroer are you logged in with your Azure AD credentials? Do you by any chance have more than one Azure AD account in workplace join?

Hi @Saurabh_Bansal 


Thanks for your reply. My computer is Azure AD Joined and there were no additional Work, or personal accounts configured.


Over the weekend, I have redeployed my computer with Autopilot and now I can discover the cloud printers again. My issue has been resolved.
