  • Printer Problem

    Hi All

    Well I have two DC's. And another machine as a print server with three printers listed.
    All three printers are listed in directory and can be find from another client and used...

    However when its being used by each client, in the print server console it adds a new printer for each member "Name (Redirected 2)"

    Why does it keep doing this? why wont it use the print server one rather than duplicate it?

    Maybe it's me and being late but I can make no sense of your post. Could you rephrase it in a way that it can be understood and add more information about the setup. Thanks.

    2 2 was 1 2.

      If I am reading your question correctly, that happens when you connect to a server through RDP and you have the Printer Redirection enabled.

        Sure

        a) THE SETUP:
        2 Active Directory Controllers, 1 print server, 3 network printers

        b) PRINT SERVER:
        All three printers are listed and have drivers assigned, they are all displayed in the directory

        c) THE CLIENT XP PRO:
        Can find all three printers, when you click ok to add the printer it lists this.

        When you go back to the print server to check on settings it adds the same printer name but ends with (redirect 2) for example if i selected the printer in the AD list called "Admin" it will list this in print server console as "Admin (Redirected 2)"

        Only after step c. If i remove the printer from the client machine it removes it from print server.



        The reason why i ask this question is because I dont have time to setup print properties for each printer once it adds another redirected.

          This looks right although I am unsure what settings to enable on GPO in windows 2008, and do I apply this to client machines or the print server GPO's?
