Wyse S10 and Citrix XenApp 6 printing issues
Posted on 2011-10-20
I am having an issue withing printing on some Wyse S10 thin client devices in a Citrix XenApp 6.0 environment with Windows Server 2008 R2. All of the latest hotfixes are applied.
The thin clients are running WTOS7.0.33 (they connect to an FTP server and grab their configuration from the FTP server). The environment has ALL network printers and for some strange reason, the thin clients cannot print to some printers. In the WNOS.ini file I am using the following command to map printers:
NetworkPrinter=PRINTER IP ADDRESS/PRINTER_NAME PrinterID="Exact_Driver_Name_on_XENAPP_Server" Enabled=yes
Some of the symptoms we are experiencing are:
- Printer redirects and you can print only 1 or 2 pages, anything more it will just stop and crash the print spooler (Brother HL-2140 Printers)
- Printer DOES NOT REDIRECT (driver names are EXACT, what is weird was originally at first roll out, the printers showed up but then stopped) (HP CP4025)
- Printer Not printing in color (Printing to HP Color LaserJet CP2025)
- Print job is sent to printer, you hear the printer start to print but then just stops (This is happening on a Xerox WorkCentre 5225A)
The xenapp servers are in another location and the main office connects via a site to site VPN. The way we are working around these printing issues is by installed the printers locally on the xenapp servers and then the users can see it in their sessions. This is not optimal because if the site-to-site goes down they can not print.
All Xenapp Policies have been enabled for printer redirection and no bandwidth polices are configured.
Does anybody have any possible solutions?
