    Exclamation Terminal Serve and Print Driver

    Hi All,

    I have an issue with terminal Services and a print driver. The boss wants the printer to default to Black printing which it is on the server and all the client machines. But when users Logon to a remote session (and drag there printer through) the printers defaults are reverted back to colour?

    Can anyone explain this?

    thanks

    If you push out printers using R2 or 2008 Print Management, printers are defaulted alphabetically. Try renaming them Black Printer and Colour Printer for example.

    I mean within the Print Driver, the priniting Defaults within the driver, on ther server the driver is B&W printing. On the Clients the defaults are B&W printing BUT when the remote to a terminal session (and drag the printer through from the client) the Priniting defaults revert to COLOUR????

    thanks

    Oh right I'm with you now. That seems really strange. Have you specified that users can only Print and Manage Documents, not Manage Printers (under the security tab).

    Alternatively you could try upgrading the driver if you haven't already.
