Windows Terminal Server - Printer name changes - and font issues
Posted on 2011-10-13
pdc is windows 2003 sbs
terminal server is windows 2008 standard
most workstations are xp pro
When we log onto the terminal server, the local printer is added fine. However, the name on the local printer continues to change. example hp laserjet redirect 01. The next time we log into the terminal session (same user and same local workstation), the hp laserjet redirect 02 printer name will appear.
We have some database applications that we have to configure with the printer name. With the name continuing to change, the printer will not work unless we change the printer setup within the application.
Also, we have noticed that even when we do print, some fonts do not print properly. The only font that prints fine is the Arial. All documents and fonts look fine on the print preview through the terminal server but only the arial font is correct. If we try to print these printers from the local workstation, everything prints fine.
