On our Domain Controller (Server 2003) in the System event logs I see a lot of these errors for printers, the DC has never had any printers installed on it. These printers that are in the Event log are printers on our network or its for printing to Adobe or Microsoft Office Document Image Writer, and Microsoft Shared Fax Driver.  Below is a copy of one of  the event ID:1111 logs:

"
Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      TermServDevices
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1111
Date:            7/15/2009
Time:            4:55:36 AM
User:            N/A
Computer:      DC01
Description:
Driver HP LaserJet P2015 Series PCL 6 required for printer !!192.168.82.151!HP LaserJet P2015 Series PCL 6 is unknown. Contact the administrator to install the driver before you log in again."

Can anyone tell me what is causing this and how to fix it? I don't have this problem on any of our other Server 2003 servers its only on our Domain Controller.

All servers run Server 2003 and all clients are XP Pro.

Thank you,
DSterling

Usually, by default, the remote desktop client will attempt to create local printers on your PC in your remote desktop session on the target machine.  For this to work, the drivers need to be installed on the target machine.  Because as you've said, the server has never had any printers on it, the message you see is generated.

You can pretty much ignore the message as it isn't a real problem.  To "fix" it permanently, you could either install the drivers to set your RDP client to not map local printers.
