Admins and Citrix Session printers

    I have a xen app 6 farm running 2008R2 where a fair number of the users are required to have local admin access to the server due to a badly coded application. The admin rights is for the moment unavoidable however now all users can see all session printers on each server. Is there anyway to prevent users from seeing each others session printer when they have admin rights. ?

there are "new" registry-keys to configure the printing and printer-visibility within XA6

I don't think it's possible. You have to remove them from the group to restrict. See point 1.
Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Instead of providing local admin rights for your users, can you provided elevated permissions on some directories/registry keys?  It's a better option from both a security and printing standpoint.

Although it may be a bit painful, run Process Monitor on a box with standard user permissions and you'll see exactly where elevated permissions are necessary.
the policy in the presention server console can be set to allow default printer quene only or disable all printers quene.
