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??

When you migrated from SBS did you remove the SBS specific group policies?

When you created your new user is it in the users container in Active Directory Users and Computers or under the MyBusiness one?

So the new user that works is in the user container?

Where are the others? And do they work if you move them to the users container also?

I'm sorry...I see what you are saying now. I created a seperate OU for this new user. I think I see where your going with this. Let me create a new OU and place a couple of in place users in that OU to test. I will report back. Thanks!

Unfortunatly I have checked moving users to a seperate OU, which has not helped. I have been reading up on a script to set the default printer, however I have been unsuccesful as of yet. Do you know of one I could use.

Thanks.
