    Greetings Fellow Techies

    I have an annoying problem with networked printers disconnecting/disappearing when TS users logoff.

    Current configuration is:

    SQL server (WinSvr 2K8 R2 Std) has printers installed on it (standard TCP/IP Port) and printer is shared, there are also some printers installed on the DNS server and a couple of satellite offices.

    Users connect to TS servers (WinSvr 2K8 R2 & WinSvr 2K3) printers are connected and work fine until they logoff, when they log on the printers are gone "sometimes some printers are still there!?"

    I have tried logging onto the server as domain administrator and connecting printers but they won't even stay for administrator (have had this with win7 client machines) and tried directly 'console' at the server.

    I have looked at the printers on the SQL server and sharing properties, but can’t find anything that would suggest that it is stoping printers from coming back at login on TS

    Note that local (client machines) connecting to the same shared printer from the SQL server don’t have the problem it's just on the TS server.

    so any ideas are greatly appreciated, I have Googled and searched TSG with no luck.

    Cheers
