Hi Jason,

 

Don't believe everything you read on forums! A lot of it is posted by
sys admins that don't have a clue.

 

Nothing has changed since that post. I still use the same mechanism with
HP UPD 5.2 and 2008 R2 (XenApp6).

 

Cheers,

Jeremy.

Interesting to hear someone has had good luck with the HP UPD on XA.

We are still running XA5 on win2003, a few months back I started reading
the citrix forums and found more people having issues with the HP UPD
than not.

 

Any tips or tricks for using it? I see you have a blog post from 2009
about this, anything changed from then?

 

Thanks,jb

Hi Ronnie,

 

For the most part the HP UPD drivers work really well. If you are going
to rely on the HP UPD for client printer mappings, you'll need to map
their driver to the HP UPD, otherwise it will always fail back and use
the Citrix UPD.

 

For Example: These were the driver mappings from one of my recent
projects:

hp designjet 800ps 42 PS3 > HP Universal Printing PS

HP DesignJet 755CM/PS > HP Universal Printing PS

HP LaserJet 4000 Series PCL6 > HP Universal Printing PCL 6

HP LaserJet 4100 Series PCL > HP Universal Printing PCL 5

HP LaserJet 5000 Series PCL6 > HP Universal Printing PCL 6

 

Cheers,

Jeremy.

Hi,

 

Just going to ask this again as didn't get any responses. At this stage
I have tested the HP UPD and its looking like it's going to work with
all our printers apart from the A0 one for printing drawings.  

 

I hope to use the HP UPD and for any remote users trying to use their
own printer use the Citrix UPD as fail back.

 

Should I be looking out for anything else ?

 

Thanks

Ronnie

Hi,

I have to review our print server, as we are running lots of old drivers
which are not really compatible with the new W7 laptops and Vista Pc's. 

Also every time we get a new printer type we have to go through the
whole process of changing the print server and then making sure all
XenApp boxes matches the print server.

We have been lucky enough as we don't really have many weird print
issues, but we do tend to keep to the same printer model were possible
and always from HP.

I am thinking of looking at using the new HP Universal Print driver only
if possible across the board. Has anyone gone down this route ?

We currently have 30 HP models and what I've been reading so far is that
the universal driver will work with nearly all of HP models.

Any advice or comments ?

Thanks

Ronnie
