I need to install one printer driver on multiple VDI's so that the local printer will be redirected (if I don't install the printer drivers, it does not redirect properly). On one of the VDI's I have via a RDP session added a local printer, installed the drivers and afterwards removed the local printer. And that works fine and is all I need. Is there a way to do this without having to RDP and install a local printer?

What VDI technology? If you are using VMware View in linked-clone configuration with persistent desktops, you could update the base image and recompose the desktops... –  Jes Mar 14 '11 at 14:05
    
you can avoid havin to do that by using a print server –  Jim B Mar 14 '11 at 14:48

Use the Print Management MMC Console (In RSAT if you don't have it already) to add the Print Driver to the Base Image.
