We are having few servers on our Citrix Farm & 2 of them we cant see the client's auto created printers. Since this is very helpful in ths case of troubleshooting we are struggling to fix this. Few auto created printers are there in the Printers folder in the server, but not all. At least there is no event occurs on the Event viewer regarding the printer auto creation status, either its failed or created.

As a example there may be 30 users logged on to the system, but only 3 0r 4 auto created printers do show in the printers folder.

But the users can print to the hidden printers & the printing event occurs on the Event viewer.

Farm Config: Citrix PS 3.0 with windows 2003

This is a weird situation & any comment is appreciate.

thx

Did you add the registry key to allow the admins to see the printers?

CarlWebseter, Are you thinking about the ="DefaultPrnFlags"=dword:00004000 I thought that was needed in 4.0 to get back to seeing the printers like in 3.0. I could be wrong, it's been a while I don't see 3.0 very often anymore.

Hi All,

Thanks for your time.

No I havent done any registry edit still.

Since the default option is to allow admins to see all the printers above registry setting should come with default installation. Is it?

Anyway let me know the Registry Key value & the registry location.

Thx

Hi Techs,

I have already went through the CTX119684 article, it applies only to PS 4.0 & PS 4.5, but not PS 3.0.

Appreciate any answer.

Thanks

No, I havent.

Since the article itself applies to PS 4.0 & on wards there might be some major issues if I apply that value.

Cant take that risk since these are in production.

But do you still think tat will work?
