Terminal Services won’t map local printers

I have a Terminal Server that serves 5-10 outside users. It was working fine until I brought a new DC on line last weekend and turned off the old DC. Since then, users can access, authenticate and run apps on the TS, network drives map to the clients and everythiing is great. Except, the local printers that used to be available in their office no longer are. I have checked all the RDP properties and the proper boxes are checked/unchecked to map local printers at the client level. All the clients see is a printer installed on the TS. My TS and DC are both Windows Server 2003 and the remote machines are XP, SP1. Any thoughts? I would appreciate any help, my users are whining quite a bit. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

1st – Was the old DC 2000 or 2003? Is the new DC SP1?

2nd – Are the printers IP addressed or furnished by local PCs?

3rd – Have you verified the firewall openings for printing?

If I had to guess, it would probably be the 3rd question that points to the answer. The new server is not providing a service (RDP?) in the same manner as the old one did. If you ran the ‘Security Configuration Wizard’, there was on one of the umpty-ump pages a section on Terminal Services. I would start there.

Good luck.

    1. Both DCs are 2003, NOT SP1 2. The local printers are both IP addressed and local to machines. 3. Since the new DC is not SP1, do I need to worry about firewall setting? it is set up identically to the old DC. This challenge is giving me (more) gray hair. Any other thoughts would be highly appreciated

    Can clients map the printers manually or are they totally unavailable? Since it's a new DC, did you migrate/move the logon scripts over to the new DC when it came online? Are there any GPOs that got smashed when you removed the other DC? SF
