    I can add a printer to a TS, share, set security, and then select List In Directory…. The domain user could add that way, but i would like to do it another way.

    I have a couple TS’s, and 1 DC controlling them both. I have some printers installed on 1 TS, and others on another TS.

    I would like for a user to log into their respective server, and have a printer set up for them, no matter which server it’s on.

    On my Domain Controller. I tried on my GPO under, User Configuration>Preferences>Control Panel Settings>Printers. I mapped a printer there, then when to the terminal server, and added the domain user to the security but that didn’t work.

    Any Ideas,
