Where do print jobs get spooled with automatically created local printers?  Is it on the Terminal Server or the client?

They use the TS print spooler (..\windows\system32\spool\printers)

On the server. The spooler service work towards ..\windows\system32\spool\printers. (the location of all print jobs in queue)

Is it possible to get it to spool print jobs locally instead of on the server?  Sorry for the extra question.

When clients connect to a Terminal Services session and the clients have network printers configured, the client's network printers are not redirected. This behavior is by design. Microsoft does not provide support for redirection of network printers in Windows 2000 Server or Advanced Server. This functionality requires a 3rd party add-on product.

Sorry maybe I was not clear with my question.  What I meant was is it possible to configure TS so that it spools print jobs generated by locally attached printers on the local client instead of on the server?

When the printer is auto created it uses the TS spooler to be able to print from application on the TS. It's the spooler on the TS that handel all print jobs, even redirection. The TS can't just send the print jobs to a client spooler without using its own spooler.
