How to set up a printer as default printer for all the TS Users?

Hi,

We have a Windows 2008 TS where all the users need to have the same printer as default printer, how can we apply this?
I've been looking in the GP settings to apply this but no option can be selected to do this.

You may need to disable having their workstation's default printer set to the default in a group policy:

Terminal Server\Printer Redirection

    * Do not allow client printer redirection
    * Do not set default client printer to be default printer in a session    <===== MAY NEED TO SET THIS ONE
    * Redirect only the default client printer
    * Specify terminal server fallback printer driver behavior
    * Use Terminal Services Easy Print printer driver first

You can use a logon script like the one in this article:

There is a group policy in windows 2008 which can help you deploy the printer.
You will find the option in Print Management Console.
You will have to install this as a feature after print role is installed.
Once you are in PMC, then you can add the appropriate print server. You will be able to get all the printers there. Then you can select Deployed printers and then use the deploy group policy for users. All the users should be able to get the printer once they log on to the TS session.

With GPP, it can be done. Create a policy, apply it to all users, select printer deployment via GPP and set the standard printer. Then - important - select item level targeting and make it apply only to the terminal server. Tested and working.
