Default Printing Issue within Win2003 Server/Citrix!

Dear experts,

I have an issue with the default printers on our LAN! We have a mix of Networked printers and PC's with shared printers and finally some thin client (Chippc) terminals with printers attached. Its annoying as its a new job and I would prefer all printers to be networked, but alas that is out of my control for the time being.

I believe due to the mix of printer connections some users who login in the morning find that there default printer has changed to another device  and not their nearest or own printer.

I have looked around on the web and can't find much on this as I have seen it has happened quite a lot with offices running Terminal Services.

We have a series of printer mappings in the logon script and it sets them to their local device which is for users running an XP Pro PC and none for a user running a thin client terminal. I have not tried using the name of the thinclient in replace of the XP workstation as I thought I would see if I can get any thoughts on anything deeper than may be causing a problem!

Any help or thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Ross.

It is pretty hard to answer your questions as you don't give to much information.
Is this happening on ALL clients ?
Is this happening with ALL the printers or with ALL type of printers ? (local and network)

How does your logon script make the mapping and how does the logon script which printer is closes for user X for example ?
What if user X will log on the machine Y that is not so near to the printer ?

Apologies, was not sure if I should go off on one just yet incase its a lost cause.

It only happens to 3 people. One of them has a XP PC and a local Printer attached and the other two are users that have a thin client (chippc) with a printer attached to them via parallel.

The logon script regarding the printer setup is as follows :-

if "%username%"=="User" \\SERVER\NETLOGON\CON2PRT.EXE /C \\\\Onehundred35\dj990c

Anymore info, just let me know.

Regards,
Ross.
