Printing not working on RDP session even though printers are visible in RD session (ie drivers installed and sent with session etc)

By | April 18, 2013


Besides having the role of Terminal Services in Application Mode installed, you also installed the role of a Domain Controller (DC)

When a DC is being configured as a TS server, there is a standard warning message which states:

“Installing Terminal Services on a Domain Controller is not recommended. Do you want to continue?”

Resolution :

1. Click Start, search for cmd.exe

2. Right click on cmd.exe

3. Click on ‘Run as Administrator’

4. Type “C:\” w/o the quotation marks and then Press Enter.

5. Type CD\Windows\System32\Spool and then Press Enter.

6. Type Cacls.exe PRINTERS /e /g users:C and then Press Enter.

7. Restart the computer
