Windows Server Logs Off Slowly
Posted on 2006-07-16
I am having trouble with my Windows 2000 Servers. I have two problems actually but I think they are related. I have users that use Terminal Services to connect to these servers. Their printers are mapped when they connect. Recently when I log in as Administrator of these systems, and then logoff, I get a message "Saving your settings" and this hangs for 2 or 3 minutes before closing down. Also, my printer mappings are not disconnecting and several times a day I have to manually delete the printer mappings. If I don't, the print spooler stops and has to be manually restarted. I was reading Microsoft Article 814770 which made me think these two problems might be related in some way. I also know that corrupt drivers can also create the printer issue. Any ideas of how to make the servers shut down more quickly and also how to make the printers unmap when users logout?
