It's depending on name used to log in to TS session.
If user is using his own name, then his default values (including default printer) should be used (known as client/printer).
Be sure to stop TS session after changing.

The answer changes depending on whether or not you use "Default to main client printer" on the Environment tab in the user properties in Active Directory.

Also keep in mind that the user (roaming) profile for Terminal Server is separate from the one for Windows, and that changes are only written back to the File Server when the user logs off.

So if you do use the option mentioned above, you should:
(1) log on to the user domain account.
(2) change the default printer assignment.
(3) log off to be certain that the profile was recorded on the server.
(4) log back on and go on to the terminal session.

If you do NOT use the abovementioned option,
(1) Log on to the Domain
(2) go on and log on to the Termianl Session
(3) Changethe default printer there
(4) log off Terminal Server to save your settings.

You can also use a script to assign the default printers.

This was the fix

Thank you
