Upgraded TS server (2008R2) to DC and now users cannot print using device redirection

I Upgraded my TS server (2008R2) to a DC and now users cannot print using printer redirection using remoteapp. On the users machines it says that it is printing, but the document never prints and there isnt any error that occurs.

you need to install the printing services on the TS

Darius GhassemCommented:
First thing is you should never have promoted your Terminal Server to a Domain Controller this is not recommended.

Most likely you have changed settings on the printers and added more restrictions

it either that or putting DC on my Exchange server....M$ doesnt want you doing that either though.

Alright I moved TS services to another server, but I still cannot print using remote app - I get the following errors in the event log:

Log Name:      Microsoft-Windows-PrintService/Admin
Source:        Microsoft-Windows-PrintService
Date:          11/13/2010 1:30:53 PM
Event ID:      372
Task Category: Printing a document
Level:         Error
Keywords:      Classic Spooler Event,Document Print Job
User:          DOMAIN\USER
Computer:      TSSERVER
Description:
The document Crystal Reports ActiveX Designer - rp_Unit_Directory.rpt, owned by USER, failed to print on printer HP LaserJet P2035n (redirected 2). Try to print the document again, or restart the print spooler.
Data type: RAW. Size of the spool file in bytes: 3510. Number of bytes printed: 0. Total number of pages in the document: 1. Number of pages printed: 0. Client computer: \\TSSERVER. Win32 error code returned by the print processor: 2147746065. ClassFactory cannot supply requested class

I have tried adding the everyone group - full perrmissions on the spool folder from :
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=962930

I have also disabled easyprint using group policy, that didnt work and returned the same error so I tried enabling it, still the same error.

Are you using the easyprint printer?

j_crow1Author Commented:
I need clarification on the easy print thing - is there a special driver or something I need to install to enable easyprint?
0
 
j_crow1Author Commented:
Then it should be using Easy Print by default anyway - like I said, I didnt have this problem until I upgraded a 2008 server to DC - its like there is a group policy stopping the print job before it gets to the client. I have checked all Remote Desktop printer GP's and they are all on not configured, I really dont know where else this could be coming from.

j_crow1Author Commented:
Update: I just noticed that when I go to select the printer it is coming up with an older version of the printer from when I logged in at an earlier time. What I mean is the printer says (redirected 4) and when I go to select the printer my local printer will be (redirected 5 or 6) - its like the terminal server is not deleting the temporary printers after log off - why would this happen?

Darius GhassemCommented:
If the session is still opened that could be causing the problem. Are you sure users are logging off?

j_crow1Author Commented:
I am using remote app so when they close the app it could keep them logged in for a short time - I will edit the settings to it kicks them out after a 1 min or so.

j_crow1Author Commented:
its already set to end a disconnected session after 1 minute and to delete all temp files on exit.

Tyler LaczkoCommented:
The redirect number will change with every logon.
0
 
j_crow1Author Commented:
Yeah I know, the problem is that the server is keeping the old redirect information and not updating it which can cause the Event ID that I am getting (above) - But even if I update the printer (select the new one) I get the same error in the event logs so that isnt the core problem either.

j_crow1Author Commented:
Is there some kind of new GPO in 2008 that would kill a print job like this? Because the same thing is happening on a non DC, I tend to think it is a GPO problem and not just a weird 1-server issue.

Darius GhassemCommented:
Most likely not a GPO problem but you can run GSOP to see what GPOs are applying

When trying to print from a remoteapp on another 2008 server I am not getting an error at all, it just never printers. It looks like it does, the queue is empty, but no errors in the log.

j_crow1Author Commented:
I dont know where else to look and at the point of calling M$ support.

Darius GhassemCommented:
Could be the printer but it is hard to tell

j_crow1Author Commented:
You are actually correct, I called the other users and they are printing just fine. I have no idea why this is not working for my printer, but I have an HP Laserjet P2035n - I will close the ticket. It wasnt working for my other users before the start of this so something I have done has worked.

This is a strange problem and turned out to be a problem with one printer model. Something in this post worked, but I could not tell exactly which one.
