Redirected printers appearing on print server
I've set up a dedicated printer server, ACSSPOOL006, a Windows Server 2008 virtual machine, and installed as many of our printers on it as I can get a network connection to. For some reason, Windows keeps creating "redirected" printers on the server. So, say I created a printer called SenICTLasColA3, gave it a description and shared it. When I look at the server now I see a printer called "SenICTLasColA3 on acsspool006 (redirected 2)".
The shared printers list still stays the same, so anyone connecting to the server to use a printer still sees the same list of printers, but it's getting a tad confusing with all these random extra printers appearing on the server. Anyone any idea why this happens?
