We track changes to printer configurations due to issues we've had in the past; missing trays and such.  We can "fix" the issues but it can take some time to track them down. 

Today I noticed an event id, 306, reporting a change to configuration made by sccm-pushapps.

I don't know of any settings we wouldn't configure in the Advanced properties tab of a printer's configuration window...changes being made by a print server admin.

Is this a report of a user changing one-time settings through their applications Properties tab or something I should worry about?

Would check whom owns that account in Directory Services and ask them what was done?

With the name of that account being "sccm-pushapps", do you have SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager) being used in your enterprise?

Yes we do used SCCM.

We could match time stamps between this message and a particular PC and user.  He was doing remote work on a PC that had printing issues...black bars on all four sides due to invalid paper size.  It was a historical record from over a hundred years ago.

He cropped the scan and used the print preferences tab inside the application to make the document fill the page when printed.  That makes sense the Event ID 306 change would show in the logs.

He swears he was logged on as himself but he is our application specialist that pushes out images and applications using SCCM.  We are trying to replicate.

This is not a gamechanger but we wondered how and why this happened.

Mystery solved.

A tech opened a command prompt on a remote computer using Right-Click Tools and then brought up the Printer UI to change print defaults.

He sometimes uses a Service Account when he does some remote work.

His fingers are gonna' be slapped.
