Guys, I have a client with three offices. In one, the server is hosted and a number of users from each of the two other offices connect into their profile on a virtualbox Windows 7 machine within the Windows 7 'server'.
Due to suggestions made in a previous post (http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/Windows_7/Q_28219806.html
), I thought I was successfully be able to create printer connections. They worked... at least until the PCs rebooted every night.
There are a couple of issues I need your assistance on - they're as follows:
1/ I don't seem to be able to set up one single printer that will work with all users in that same office, given I'm setting each up with a TS port appropriate to the indivualy machine and it won't work unless I set up the printer with one user and share it (but all users are in and out and not always leaving their PCs on, so this solution will require change on their part.
2/ Running into the problem above and because the clients needed all users printing ASAP, I got them going by setting up '<printer name> for <person's name>' for each user (there are only 15 users currently using the server in this way). After some attemptes, the printers I set up kept disappearing after a few minutes and a few prints. Eventually, in their place was left a single instance of the printer name (minus the 'for <person's name>' ending) with a '(redirected #)' where # was a number. Any idea what this is and how to fix it?
Looking forward to getting these guys back up and printing shortly - thanks in advance for your help.
