I am streaming a pooled image to 30 desktops.  I have read a good bit of the documentation but am unclear on the best method to provide printing.  I saw options in provisioning server, the delivery controller, and I suppose adding the printer to the VDI disk?

The printers are on a windows printer server?  What is the best and simplest option.   I am  on supporting the environment.

if your users (XenDesktops) near the printserver ...
best is using a printserver and mapping the networkprinter to the session.

if you have remote users and these should print at their local printers you can use the same "Remote Print features" like with xenApp:

One easy method would be, install all the printers to the Vdisk. Both local and network printers. Once done, go the device collection in PVS, select a particualar device>properties> select Vdisk and you find an tab for printers. Where you will see both local and desktop printers. Select the printers which you want, so it will available to the devices.

Also make sure you have enabled printers, on vdisk pool, options, enable printers managment.

The printing is local and it is on a network print server.  I was wanting to avoid messing with the vdisk image.  Can I do this through the ddc or pvs?
