    Citrix PS 4.0 thin clients and printers

    Hi There. I am new to Citrix and thin clients. Could anybody tell me about setting up printers. I have imported my print server, which inturn has populated the printers tab with all my network printers. I have then created a new citrix policy so that when any user connects they see the list of network printers. However, when logged on to Thin Client I can only see 1 printer that happens to be in the same room. None of the others are available.

    Hope this makes sense?!?!

    Is there some higher setting in Group Policy, or somewhere else, that overwrites the citrix policy.

    Thanks in advance

    Do you have any other login scripts that control printers?

    For our normal computers we have login scripts depending on the room they are in, so in turn you only see printers in IT1 when you login in there.

    Probably just answered my own question, does that mean a separate login script for the thin clients. Would my existing login scripts override the citrix policy? Why won't the exisitng scripts deal with the thin clients?

    Unless you want to alter your current script to account for them.

    Would my existing login scripts override the citrix policy?
    Only if you remove existing network printers.

    Why won't the existing scripts deal with the thin clients?
    Well assuming you're relying on the %COMPUTERNAME% variable. ThinClients don't have them. As the %COMPUTERNAME% will be the name of the Terminal Server. You need to use the %CLIENTNAME% variable instead.

    It depends on whether the existing scripting actually obtain the location from computer/client name prefix. If you have relied on having different GPO logon scripts attached to different machine OUs then this won't work to well with thin clients.

    Just use my script... it takes into account Citrix/Terminal Services.
