Default Printer selection disappear on Terminal Server with GPO refresh
Posted on 2011-04-28
I am troubleshooting a problem where a user's default printer selection is unchecked when GPO refreshes. The printer itself is still visibile, however, the user then has no default printer and many of our applications do not like that.
I can manually set it back, do a gpupdate /force and the default printer is unchecked. We currently set default printers based on group membership with a kix script.
The only recent changes have been to the workstation side with GPP printer deployment. My terminal servers are in a separate OU and the GPO for the terminal servers are setup with loopback set to replace.
Gpresults shows no settings regarding printers (GPP or redirection for RDP).
Client OS is Windows 7 - server is 2003 Ent
