Installing Univer Print Driver on Windows Print server

Last Modified: 2015-07-06
If I understand on Windows 2008 Print Server you can Install Universal Print Server(it is Citrix  component) and on XenApp servers you install Universal Print Client(also Citrix component).
Now When you create Print queues on Windows Print Server and you want the print queues to use Universal Print Driver, do you need to download UPD  from Somewhere and store it somewhere in the network, then install it on the print queue you create on Windows Print Server ?

OR

After you install Universal Print Server(it is Citrix  component) on Windows Print Server, then you create print queue, UPD will automatically show up in the drop down box of existing Drivers?

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

"What we do is install all the drivers into the driverstore on the client machines and the print server "
... not so with universal print server.
you install your printserver as otherwise customary. As add-on you install the UPS on top.
but at the client (xenApp Server) you install and configure the client component only.
these recognize the the UPS and use the universal print driver for the connection.
(you see "citrix universal printer" as drivername after connecting to the queue)
these prevent the driverdownload and makes the xenapp server more stable.
