Terminal server does not use default local printer
Posted on 2010-11-16
We have several people using terminal server. They are logging in using xp sp3 local workstations to a windows 2003 enterprise terminal server. They log in from two different physical locations, each with a different default printer configured on the workstations.
When they do this, the printer does not default to the local machine's default printer. We have gone into the options of the remote desktop session and told it to use the printers under local resources, but it still will not take the default printer of the machine they happen to be logged in on.
They can manually change the default printer to use the printer at location A, but if they go to location B it does not use the default printer of the workstation at location B, it still uses the printer from location A.
Is there anyway to change this behavior?
