default Printer changing

Hi All,

we are again facing issues with printers within our VDI environment.  As some of you might already know the default printer issue has been discussed several times. During the "thinprint" days several workarounds were posted to get around the issue by implementing GPO logon scripts or UEM settings in order to keep the users default printer.

We have switched to Vmware integrated printing and printers started changing again. The old fixes do not work.

According to the KB -> VMware Knowledge Base​ the integrated printing feature forces the local printer to become default. That is why we had to implement the workaround and it is working for most users. Unfortunately the Printers still keep changing for some of them.

Any idea how to fix this? We are not using UEM yet.

Environment = Horizon 7.12, Windows 10 1809, Roaming Profiles.

Thanks

Mat

Hi,

In VMware Integrated Printing, a new setting to stop setting local printer as default is being developed now. In 7.12, I'm afraid there is no workaround for this issue.

Hi

 

We have this default printer issue but we are using Horizon 2006. The user sets a default printer but when they log back on it's set to a local printer attached by the Integrated Printing facility.

How long until there is a fix to make it that the local printers aren't made default?
