SOLVED Client doesn't add printer that was previously removed
- FOG Version: 1.3.0-RC-25
- OS: Debian stable 8.6 (jessie)
- Service Version: 0.11.5
- OS: Win 8.1
Sorry for the long message but a lot of tests to try explaining this issue
When adding a printer on client (Fog managed printers), printer is added the first time, but i f this printer is removed then added again in fog GUI, client log show an error and doesn’t add printer this second time.
But if I add another printer, and add again the first one, it’s added by client.
First time I add printer 1:
Then I remove it:
Then I add again the same one:
Not added and error message
Then I add another one (in fact the same but with another driver):
It’s added by client but with error message
So I add agin the first one without removing the second one:
Now it’ok, 2 printers on host !!!
I remove one:
It’s removed but with error message.
I have one printer again on host
I add again the first one that was deleted before
It’s ok !!!
2 printers on host
Then I remove both:
Only printers not managed by fog are on host.
I add again the first one:
Not added and error message.
I add the second one:
It’s added but error message about the first one.
I remove it in fog gui:
And add it again:
Now it’ok, I have my 2 printers.
All seems ok when there is already one fog managed printer, but not when there is no one.

This is the same issue described here:
There isn’t a fix yet. The best you can do is deal with the FOG Client’s printer sensitivities.
I’ve also found that a FOGService restart helps a lot (reboot). For whatever reason, sometimes the fog client in my building just stops working for the duration of said computer being on, until the next reboot.
No I saw this issue before, I don’t know exactly when, and I only ran test today.
I think it’s a client issue

Is this specific to RC-25, or this is just the working release that you were able to get all the “tests”?
