I've been chasing the following issue for half a year now at our company and ask for help on the matter:
Users of a branch office (x86 clients) loggon to a Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 terminal server and carry over their printers as redirected printers. Necessary drivers are installed on the terminal server.
Now with 3 new printers (all Hewlett Packard) the printers are redirected just fine, but the printer device settings (duplex, trays) are not taken over from the client to the terminal session.
At the branch office all printers are installed on a windows server 2003 x86 server and shared with the clients. settings on the local network are taken over as they should
Strangely it works without problems with a few older HP printers still in the network. Also, we had that problem before our upgrade to ws2008 as well, but with the ws2003 servers you could manually edit printer device settings with an administrator account. However, with ws2008 the owner of the redirected printers is SYSTEM and all options are greyed out. Addionally modifications are lost when the user logs off and on again.
I am thankful for any solution
