I have about 8 printers that are redirected from the domain controller that are deployed via user GPO. The users are logging into a terminal server session. Local printer redirection is turned off. I also have local printers installed on the terminal server that are vital to operations and cannot be removed.

The domain was migrated form a 2003 SBS server. The problem I am having is all of the original users will set a default printer but everytime they log out of the terminal session the default will change. However, I just created a new user to test and this user is able to set the default printer and it does not change when logoff and logon occurs.

What am I doing wrong??
