I have a terminal server that has been giving me fits lately.  Users are not able to log in and have their printers connect reliably.  They will be able to connect in the morning and their printer will show up but later in the day they can't see their printer and when I log in it's not there.  When I log in as administrator my printers also will not connect.  

At the end of the day I will restart the server and then log in and my printers will then connect as they should.  The users will also not have any problems until later in the day.

Can someone help me find out what is going on?  When I look in the event logs I see absolutely no mention of printers being connected or any attempts at connecting.  In server 2003 I could look in the logs and find out what is going on but on this server there is nothing mentioned in the logs.
