Dear all
We are working with Microsoft Dynamics GP 10 and Windows Server 2008 R2 as our Terminal server.
All our clients are using RDP to run GP.
If I run GP locally on my machine and Print any report using SSRS, all printed papers are correct from the perspective of layout and margins
If I print the same report using RDP and the same Printer the printed paper is totally corrupted in the layout
Please I need your advice.
Thanks,

Could it be that the reports use some fonts that are installed on the client machine but not on the server? What happens if you print something else (non-SSRS)?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

have a look at the C:\Windows\Fonts folder on server and client and compare them. actually i am not familiar with GP at all but maybe there are some fonts that you can connect to GP by their names.

No printers on the server you said. Is this network printer or locally attached printer? Anyway you should definitely install the printer driver on the server.
