XenApp only mapping default printer

Small XenApp 6 farm.

Same citrix policies on all servers.

One server will map the default printer listed when you connect via ICA, and also create a Citrix Universal Printer.

Other servers will map all printers, and for some people make a Universal as well.


Where could I check to see why this is happening?   Tried several users and apps, and the behavior is the same.  One server maps only 1, the rest map them all.

You probably have a Citrix policy with only map default printer that assigned to only this server or a worker group that contain only that server

run gpresult for both server and compare the same. Make sure you applied the same policy for all the citrix servers\worker groups.

That's not correct, you can have the same gp assigned to a server however IMA policy could be filtered with users, groups, worker groups or even servers. The server will still apply the gp object but doesn't apply the IMA policy within the gp since it is filtered out.

Unfortunately, there are several places where this could be set, and troubleshooting can be difficult.  My bet is that an admin changed this for testing and never changed it back.  Maybe ask your admin colleagues if someone made a change recently?

In addition to the Citrix policy settings discussed above, it could be set within Remote Desktop as a local server remote desktop policy.  Also, could be a local server GPO and/or an AD GPO applied to an OU that only contains that server.

That is not that hard to discover since he already has the machine identified. Just check the policy setting applied to that machine.

Turned out it was a Citrix policy set via group policy.  So when I checked the policies in the Citrix console it wasn't showing up.
