Domain Admin Account not getting Domain Admin rights on 2008R2 Remote Desktop Server

I have two domain admin accounts that log into 3 remote desktop servers, on 2 of the servers they can see all printers that have a security setting to only allow users in a Printers_x group or Local domain admins.
On 1 of the remote desktop server, they can only see the printers if they are added directly to the printer.  I have tried even adding domain admins to the printer and they still cant see it.
I have checked, doman admins are in local admins group.

I ran a whoami /groups /fo list as the user and it shows they are in the local administrator and domain administrator, but the printers still do not show up.

If I add the domain admin account to the Printers_x group, the printers show up.

It's like the Remote Desktop Server is not "seeing" that the user is a domain admin.

I have checked Local Policies Security Settings and they are the same.
I also have UAC the same on both machines.

have you mapped printers through some script \ GP Preferences so that if user is member of particular group, then only printer will get mapped ?

How you are mapping printers ?

not mapping printers, no GP preferences.

as far as I know all 3 remote desktop servers are the same.

The domain admin users are also in a group called printers_hma and when they sign on, the see all the printers for Hma, just not the rest of the locations.  If I add the user directly to the security on the group, the printer shows up.  (all of the printers have local administrator), it's like TS3 (remote desktop server 3) is not honoring the Domain Administrators in the Administrator group.

This seems to have fixed itself.  my network admin made a statement that if you viewed the printers from "Devices and Printers" they showed up, but if you viewed them from a shortcut I have on allusers desktop called "Printers" they did not show up.

I just tested and they are showing up in both....
