Is the print driver on the Citrix server hosting the application?

the printer is shared throught active directory , so I am assuming the driver resides on server itself where it is being shared from.
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

To make sure I understand, are you saying the driver is installed on the Citrix server?  If so, can you connect to the share logged on as administrator and print?
