Network printer needs to be mapped after every login
We have several Vista machines, that are members of a win2003 domain. Our
users have roaming profiles, and are local administrators of their computers.
They should be able to connect once to a network printer queue on a win2003
server, and keep that printer forever. But the printer disappears everytime
they log out, and they need to search AD, and connect again eveytime they log
in.

Is printer connections saved in the users roaming profile, or in HKLM on the
computer or in another place?
What can be done to fix this?

I don't use roaming profiles so not sure where that data is. Normal
connection info is under this key.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Connections
