AutoCreate Printer in ICA

By crbloss ·
Think this a two fold problem.
1) Can not get HP laser jet 5L printers, HP laser jrt 1100 printers to install in the metaframe environment. I understand about 1100, how terminal server do not like the 'have disk' feature, and 1100 in not one of theprinters in the defaults folder, but I tired using 4 and a 4 Plus driver instead of 1100 printers, but got a 0x0 protection fault error.
2) Auto Created printers are not leaving when client computers logout of server. And in the description it is giving me the server name... ie, if server is named: ATL_R1, autocreate printer is:
ATL_R1#ATL_R1#Greenfield-Don#HP 11000.

What I have tired:
Have deleted printers through printers folder and in registry edit.. Had users log out and stopped and restarted spooler. Have edited WSUPPNT.inf folder to use 1100 printers 4 drivers. Had users log back in. Same problems. The users who can not print, printers are autocreating now:
#Greenfield#HP 1100
but, they can not print. Getting "not connected to client errors or nothing is going into print que/ coming out printer.
Printers that can print are still auto creating with the server name attached.

HELP PLEASE!!!
Thanks,

Carla

1) No solution. You must use generic driver, i contact metaframe experts, and you can look to the FAQ on citrix web site :same response, generic dirver or die by blue screen :-(.
So, stay with HP 4.
2) Name for autocreate printers : <user machinename>#<printer name>, because it create local printers and it must do difference between each, i don't understand your name's. To stop the printers mulitplication, on the administration tool's ask for main client auto create only (1 printer by user), don't use (if you can) the printer panel, but the ICA client printer configuration (metaframe tools).
With this tool try a connect with your printers, but you must install the driver on your Metaframe server before (and the same than the user machine), without this metaframe can't connect.
Our solution : all generic (ie HP 4 or Brother 730 for example) on all the user's machines, main client only create.
That's work. And sure : i refuse to open the printers panel :-)
I don't understand all your problens (what with spooler ?).

Other solutions :
generic user's profiles with a global printer,
script with net use

Explain more and I can take some time to search.

If you are still tackling this problem, perhaps you should consider calling your local super-hero.
