2008 Terminal Server and Print Manager

I have just recently upgraded both of my DCs to 2008 Enterprise and also introduced a 2008 Terminal Server. One of my DC's is holding the role as Print Server and has Print Manager fully configured. All of my users desktops are pulling the proper deployed printers on their local machines but when they log into the 2008 TS it just pulls every printer that is installed on the print server. It is not pulling redirects from client logins, just every printer that is installed on my print server regardless if it is deployed or not to that users OU.
Any help?

yes but it still installs every printer on my print server, every time someone logs in as well as uses rediredted printers. Any other ideas?

If you have the printers on the clients then the printers will come up.

Yes I know the printers will come up. They come up as redirects as well as the printers installed on my print server. Here is the issue, redirects and local installs work but the TS will not pull what is deployed through print manager. All it pulls through is everything that is installed on the print server.

If you have a GPO deploying these printers this would cause the problem. Printers do not automatically get installed you must install them manually, terminal server redirects, or through a GPO

Understand that as well that is why I am posting this. I have created a new OU, new GPO, and new user with nothing deployed to it and it still shows print server printers. I have even gone into TS Configuration Properties and disabled client printer connections. Another  thing is that the printers that are being pulled up are not even the printers that I have locally installed on my client workstation. They are the ones that are on my print server.

User is under new OU? I would disable all GPOs on that OU with the terminal server there.

Understand printers do not just appear unless they are deployed or redirected so something is deploying the printers

I do understand that something has to be deploying them some way. That is why I am asking everyone, I have made all the proper adjustments even those mentioned and recommended by yourself and this server is responding the same. I just dont get it.

Darius GhassemCommented:
So, you have user and terminal server in new OU with Block Inheritance applied on the OU level with no gpos being deployed, right?

How about login scripts any being deployed?
0
 
OnlinetransAuthor Commented:
That is correct block inheritance is applied on both and there is a logon script but nothing that applies to printers.

If you delete them do they come back?

OnlinetransAuthor Commented:
No I can not delete them it is saying that access is denied.

even going to the console and logging as Administrator brings all printers from a domain Print Server. There is nothing in local group policy from what I can see either. Any help?

OnlinetransAuthor Commented:
Sorry also meant to mention that I was logging in as local administrator on previous comment.

Darius GhassemCommented:
Once printers are installed then you should see them for local admin as well.

So, if you login with domain admin you still can't delete?

thats correct I can not delete these printers. they install on every kind of session that is established on this server. whether it is local or remote, local admin or domain admin the printers from the print server install and I can not remove them

OnlinetransAuthor Commented:
Ok I found out what it was. My TS was built before my DC's were upgraded to 2008. For those of you that have upgraded your print server you know that it removes your printers and you must reconfigure Print Manager all together. Which means Printers that were deployed PER-MACHINE are left in the registry even though Print Manager does not show them. Go to this key and remove every printer under this key. " Phnatom Deployed" Printers will be removed and print manager will take over.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Connections

Cool. Glad you figured it out. Registry deletion should do it
