Rod,

I had lots of problems with Terminal Server Profiles having their default
printer's changed.

So I implemented a combination logoff/logon script to save their default
printer to a text file on their home drive, and reset it when they log back
on.

I can share, if you'd like...

We are using terminal server on a Windows 2000 Server.  Some users of
terminal services are claiming that it is resetting their default printer
from <whatever> to a Samsung printer that is defined on the terminal server.
I don't think it is possible for the terminal server to change a user's
default printer, but I could be wrong.

Is it possible that the terminal server is changing the default printer to
something else?

And if this isn't the case, what could be changing the default printer for
them?  (The majority of these users haven't a clue as to how to change
anything with their printers' settings/configurations.)
