Citrix Printer Questions

I had a 1 server (server1) Citrix PS 4.0 farm.  I added a 2nd Citrix server (server2) to the farm.  All of my network printers are defined on server1.  I replicated all of the print drivers from server1 to server2.  Do I have to create identical printers on server2 for apps published on server2 to be able to print to these priinters? Alternately, if I import the printers from a print server will users using published apps from server1 and server2 automatically be able to print to the imported printers?  If no what must I do to allow them to print?

    Accepted Solution

    If you created the printers directly on server1 they will NOT replicate to server2 automatically (only the drivers will).

    If you have imported a network print server then the printers can/will be available automatically on server2.  You'd want to create a Policy in the Citrix Management Console to define which printers you wanted available to your users.

    Go to Printer and Faxes and add the printers from server1 as Network printers.
