Hello Experts,

I am getting following errors in the event log, Source:  TermServDevices , EventID:1106. Descitpion says: The printer could not be installed.
Another warning I am getting is: Source: Print, EventID: 2, Description: Printer printername/Session2 was created.
Our Vendor told me its creating virtaul session everytime we login using RDP. and should just use KVM or walk to server. Experts please suggest is RDP causing any problem on the server and is it true that virtual sessions are being created and RDP should not be used to connect. I think RDP should not cause any problem? Thanks for your views and help.

I rdp all the time.  When you make an rdp connection, by default it will try to setup a temp virtual mapping to your printer, so if you print something you can choose your printer (can be handy).  The error is that the drivers needed to use your printer are not on the server, so it cant set it up.  If you are not printing this should not be an issue, but  is handy info if you are trying to work our why you cant print.

If you dont need a printer, try this
Open rdp connection box (your your local pc) (but dont connect just yet)
Expand so you can see all the options
Go to "local resources", and uncheck printers

RDP to the server and see if you get the error.
