Citrix printers do not get created

We have windows print server, that's where all the print queues and drivers are installed, most of the drivers are Universal print drivers.

When Citrix user launches a citrix sessions, it seems like the session is missing the printer component. User has the Network printer mapped on his computer, when he opens up an application on citrix and tries to print, it does not print. If he opens up an application which is not citrix app then he can print without issue.

Any idea?

Thank you

How are your printers to deployed to users who launch their citrix sessions or citrix published apps?

It would of course work locally as the printer would be mapped on the actual machine itself.

Also do you have any citrix policies created to allow the mapping of local printer queues?

You really need to provide many details (like errors and logs and config summary).  However, here is my XenApp 6.5 config to help you get started:

The star placement got all wonky on me an I am sorry I did not fix it.  It should be obvious.

The problem is with Windows print server only, locally attached print devices work fine.
I believe it got to be print drivers as we always blame it on the drivers. Though we use Universal Print Drivers on windows print server.

Did you tried group policy to map the print server printers? If not you can give a try and let us know the update.

What does group policy  map the print server printers do ?
To my understanding End users already have printers mapped to the printers on windows print servers. What I mean, in End user PC  you add network printer and select windows print server and the printer you want to map to.
So during Citrix user session, the printer map should automatically travel with user session.
