Local Windows XPS overides network printer
Posted on 2013-07-02
We have situation at the moment, whereby the Windows XPS printer is over riding the network printer.
For instance, the HP thin client desktop has Windows XPS printer. Once the user is successfully authenticated via Vmware view client, the network printer gets over ridden by Windows XPS printer from the HP thin client machine.
From the HP thin client desktop i have changed the registry value to 0 of the Default State of the printer...meaning not to redirect it to the network via vmware view.
HP Thin client Desktop with Windows 7
Vmware view client 5.3
vmware view manager 5.2 (server)
These two users only have this problem which occurred right after changing their HP thin client desktop from Windows XP to Windows 7.
These users are domain users and have roaming profiles. I have not considered as yet recreating their roam profile which could potentially be corrupted.
But, a particular user can logon remotely via VPN then connects to vmware view client but doesn't over ride his network printer upon a successful logon to the domain via vmware view client.
Appreciate if you have some good ideas on how to fix this super nagging issue.
