Thread: Printers for all users visible on Remote Desktop Server

    Printers for all users visible on Remote Desktop Server

    Hello,
    We currently run an RD farm with 5 RD hosts. Users are distributed to the hosts based on load balancing.
    When someone logs into any of the 5 servers, they can not only see the printers they've mapped, but printers other users (on the same host) have mapped. It will even show duplicates.
    For instance:
    User A logs in and maps Printer 1
    User B logs in and maps Printer 2
    -At this point both User A and B can see both Printers 1 and 2.
    User C logs in and maps Printer 1
    -All 3 users now see 2 copies of Printer 1, and Printer 2.
    Is there any way to hide other users printers, so each user ONLY sees the printers they themselves have mapped?

    What are you using for a terminal server or RD session host?

    Are these network printers, or printers connected to the clients being used to connect via RDP?

    neakyCyber - I'm not sure I understand your question. Terminal Servers and the RD Session host are both 2012 R2.
    sflatechguy - These are network printers. The print server is Server 2012 R2 file server.

    Thats because you have printer re-direction enabled mate.
    So you will see the printer on the server and a redirect printer as well as other printers belonging to the people from another group.

    You need to disable printer redirection or disable print drivers on the actual RD host mate.
    Depends where the printers are located.
