Terminal Server. Users default printer keeps changing.
Posted on 2004-10-26
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It appears that this issue has been brought up and addressed hundreds on times in this wonderful forum, and I've sifted through most of them, but I'm embarrassed to tell that you that I still can't quite figure it out. So I'd like to take one more crack at it.
I have a Win2k Terminal Server. I have users that work both in the office and at home and have implemented roaming profiles on the network. Can't seem to get my arms around the common denominator but here's the symptoms of one user in particular.
Her home PC is connected to a local printer (not sure whether or not she actually prints to it while she's VPN'ing, but I'm going to assume that her home PC sees this as her default printer).
When she gets back in the office, her default printer in the office is changed. So she resets it. Then of course the next time she logs in at home and then comes back to the office, its changed again.
How do I tell terminal services to maintain the user's default printer, especially when she's in the office?
