Remote Desktop Problems

I am running a network with 3 windows 2000 domain controllers.  I used terminal services to gain remote access to all three of the servers.  On occasion I have used the remote desktop feature on a windows xp pro desktop to access one of the servers remotely.  I have noticed that if I use remote desktop to access a server that soon I get calls saying that users cannot print to the printers on that particular server.  I go to the server and all printers will be gone from the printers folder.  That is the only noticible problem with the server and a reboot seems to fix it all.  I was guessing there was some problem with remote desktop (xp) connecting to server 2000, but now the same thing seems to be happening when I use remote desktop to access my 2003 servers too.  Help.

Not sure why the printers would be removed - perhaps it is getting confused when your machine connects.

However to fix the problem disable the printer mapping in TS configuration on the server. This will stop your machine from even trying to connect its printers to the TS session.
