Redirect only the default client printer - Windows 2008 R2 Terminal Services

Last Modified: 2014-11-21
When logging into a terminal server as non-admin user all my users see all the printers for every session.

I have one terminal server in its own OU.  I have a Terminal Server GPO setup set to Redirect only the default client printer under the computer settings and user settings.  I have that GPO linked to the OU the terminal server is in as well I have it linked to an OU for my users as well.  The GPO is set to filter and only apply to user in a security group.  I have run gpupdate /force.  I have also tried gpupdate /H as a user but I don't get any output for the computer settings I think because the user does not have rights.

How can I get this to map only the client's default printer?
