We have a client with ESXi 5.1.0 build 799733 running. ESXi host a Windows 2008 server and 8 Windows 7 Pro workstations. All the VMs have redirected printers in Devices and Printers, rather than just a single install of the printer needed.

Some printers are connected via ethernet and some via USB, then shared off primary workstations.

Is there a reason for these redirected printers?
