I have a new server running Server Standard 2008 SP2 that only a few people Remote Desktop into. When I try to print locally to my computer when remoted into it, it will only work with the mstsc /admin switch, without the /admin switch, printing seems to work but nothing pushes through to the local computer. Other printers give an error. One suggestion was to change the permissions of the win/sys32/spool folder to allow domain users full permission, I did that with no luck. It was throwing the following event error for a user, but she could print fine with the /admin switch to the same printer with the same login credentials. Doesn't matter if logged in as administrator, still need that /admin switch to print.
