Windows Server 2008 SBS - Printer Redirection

I have a server - 2008 SBS that only 1 user logs into.  We are trying to get printer redirection working with multiple printers that work on other 2008 servers.  When I go through eventvwr nothing shows, usually it will give you some type of information(Missing drivers, or something).  I am getting nothing.  GPO I have enabled printer redirection.  Is there some other setting I am missing.  I have googled the crap out of this and am wits end.

You can't run terminal services in application mode on an SBS machine - it is automatically set to run in remote administration mode. My experience with 2008 TS has shown printer redirection to be a problem when you log on in remote administration mode. It's not normally a problem, since you are in administration mode and not likely to need to print anything remotely, but I have not seen any redirection of remote printers in this mode.  All you get is any printers that are local to the TS.  I haven't been able to find any documentation on this yet, so I'm just speaking from practical experience.

Are you connecting to the sbs via RDC and is this internal external? are you running at least rdc 6.1 on the remote machine?

Also is .NET 3.1 or above installed on the client machine? What is the client operating system?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Just to clarify this is a SBS 2008 machine.  tried it on another sbs 2008 machine and had the same issue.  Is there a hidden setting in SBS?  Is it even possible.
