I have a server that’s showing error 1111 with source TerminalServices-Printers in Event Viewer - Windows - System; seems like is trying to install all kinds of printer drivers every time me or some other administrator remotely login. This is not a terminal server but I need to know how to disable redirection to stop the error from showing, can someone help? Please see attach. Thanks.

Disable attaching printers in MSTSC settings (show options / local resources) save as default.

Do this on the PC you use to remote in.

You can change this behavior for all users (or a select group of users) using group policy.
In the group policy management editor, drill down to this set of policy objects to adjust settings for printer redirection for the server or PC in question:
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Printer Redirection

Then, enable the "do not allow printer redirection" policy.


Thank You both, the answer from Alicia W is something to consider on the long run and the solution from ktaczala worked immediately.
