Terminal Server trying to isntall Network Printers

Our Domain users get networked printers installed via login script. When the log on to the Remote Desktop Server it also tried to install the network printers. On our 2003 Terminal Server this does not happen. So i assume it has to do with a Group Policy settings. Can anyone point me to where this is controlled in GroupPolicy for TermServer?

THanks

Hi there, from within Group Policy Management Console on the Organisation Unit (OU) that the Terminal Server is located in, select the 'No Override' (Block Inheritence) option and see if this resolves the problem.

It is most likley that you have specified the printers to be mapped using a policy for the user accounts as well as possibly the Default Domain Policy.

Here is a couple of links to look at based around Group Policy and printers:

Thanks I selected Block Inheritance. But I still see the Default DomPol as the first precedence. Anything I can do to push the change through, since it seems to not be happening on its own.

Not sure if this matters - but as soon as I selected Block, I got a Blue exclamation icon on the OU within GPMgmnt.

THe Blue Exclamation icon is what you want to ensure that 'Block Inheritance' is enabled.

If this is enabled and the Default Domain Policy is still coming through, then the Default Domain Policy is more than likely configured with the 'Enforced' or 'No Override' policy setting.

This setting will need to be removed from the Default Domain Policy before the 'Block Inheritance' setting can take place.

Hope this helps!
