Hi everyone,

 

I have a Windows Server 2012 R2 terminal server that has mapped printers that keep re-appearing, sometimes in duplicates, even after they have been deleted.

 

The printers are shared from another server, therefore the printers are mapped as "printername on SERVER".

 

Referring to the screenshot, the printers highlighted in red are the ones that re-appear after being deleted.

There are no group policies that I can see that would map these printers to this terminal server.

 

Can someone please point me to where I can find a log as to why these printers are being mapped?

 

Thanks

 

Ash
