Printer deployment is killing Terminal Service Logons
I have recently started to move over the way we install our printers and set staff to have printers installed via GPP set by membership which seems to work on our desktop machines. Unfortunately if you log on remotely the logon sits on the Applying group policy printers policy. We obvisouly have a clash with our Group policy set on the Terminal Servers which is causing this but as the Printers sit in their own GPO I thought I should be able to exclude the servers from applying these settings as they do not need the printers mapping on this server anyway.
I have added the terminal servers to the delegation section of the printers GPO and set the permissions to deny access. Problem is that they still seem to be trying to apply the Printers Policy. As it is just sitting there trying to complete a connection if you close the session down you then get an error saying you are unable to logon while the server is completing a logon/logoff connection. Eventually you can get back on but it can take hours or a reboot of the server.
I could do this through Item Level Targetting but I did not want to have to add the servers OU to each printer being mapped, but thought I could do this once to the Group Policy using the method above.
We cant block inheritance on the Terminal Server OU as it picks up some settings from other domain policies. Any ideas of how I can do this?
