Printer redirection in terminal services
Posted on 2004-11-17
Ok here is my problem, every time I connect to one of my servers from terminal services it keeps installing the printers from my client machines on the server I connect to. I know when you using the Remote Desktop Client for Windows XP you can disable it with a check box. Unfortunately I have more than a few servers to mange so I use the remote desktop snap in for MMC. This allows me to switch through server with no difficulty. The problem is there is no option to disable printer redirection. So I figure there must be a group policy setting for it, so I check and find that there is a GP under \computer configuration\administrative templates\windows components\terminal services\client server data redirection\do not allow client printer redirection\ ENABLED. Now I have set this policy over the client computer OU and the servers OU. I have rebooted the servers Windows 2000 and ran GPUPDATE on the client machine XP. I still get errors every time I connect to the servers.
Driver HP LaserJet 8150 PS required for printer __scanner_Systems is unknown. Contact the administrator to install the driver before you log in again.
I have tried for a week to figure this out. I guess its time to hand it over to you guys.
