Print Server not applying default settings to PC's

Hi All,

I'm running an environment consisting of XenServers with Windows 2008 R2 VM's and our PC/NB environment is all Windows 7 32-bit with only a handful on 64-bit.

What I wanted some assistance with is, when I change the properties on a printer within the print server i.e. Colour to Black and White, it won't actually apply the settings to my test client notebook that is signed on as a regular AD user.

I have tried removing and re-adding the printer but it still shows Colour as the default even though on the print server its set to B&W.

Can anyone help with this? Haven't had this issue in the past under traditional Server 2003 / physical server environments.

Thanks.

dont forget that there are typically two places to change the defaults in the printer driver

Hi wolfcamel,

Where exactly would the 'other' place be?

When you right click on the printer you can go to Printer properties, Printer Preferences or just Properties.

I have checked within all of these menu's that it is set to Black and White.
