terminal services redirected printer wont clear after session logoff
Posted on 2009-06-29
On server 2003 running terminal services there are 40 connected users with approximately 15 different printer drivers.
sometimes, after users log off, their redirected printers won't clear.
when they logon again a new redirected printer is created and so on.
the result is that there are "phantom" redirected printers in the server.
The only way to remove them is to delete them one by one.
To do that, I make sure no one is logged on, stop the spooler, delete all files from the PRINTERS folder, start the spooler and delete all printers.
Any idea how to prevent these "phantom" printers or to make sure thay are deleted when the user will logoff?
