Default printer settings on a terminal server 2003 not sticking..

I have a terminal server 2003 with a networked Zebra GK420D label printer installed locally on the terminal server itself with the correct drivers. I have the default label size set in printing defaults and printing preferences


When I try and print from any program via the terminal server, the default label settings do not stick..

If I go to start printers and look at the default printer size, everything looks correct.


I do have a locked down GPO in place, so i am not sure if something from it is restricting the default printer settings?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Where did you set the preferences? Did you do it under the normal spot - preferences?

You need to make the changes under the Printer properties - Advanced Tab - Printing defaults.

Sure.. It does the same thing with a domain admin account logged into the server.
