TermServDevices Error

I am getting this error and about 5 others for other printers duing the day when users are logged on, but not at night:
Driver hp LaserJet 1160 required for printer hp LaserJet 1160 (Copy 1) is unknown. Contact the administrator to install the driver before you log in again.

oBdAConnect With a Mentor Commented:
This happens when a user starts an RDP session from a client that has a printer installed for which the terminal server has no driver available.
You can either ignore this, or install the driver (only!); you don't need any management software, just double-click "New Printer", browse to the inf file, install it with any name at any port, delete the object afterwards. Do not install printer drivers "as they come"; only install the ones you really need, as not all print drivers are doing well on a terminal server, and can take down the spooler.
Another option is to redirect unknown printer drivers to (more or less) compatible ones; check here:
Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003 Terminal Services server logs events 1111, 1105, and 1106
