Slow printing with Windows 2003 print server compared to NT4 printserver.
Posted on 2004-09-02
I have recently upgraded my servers and network software.
I have gone from NT4 to Windows 2003 on all my primary servers.
I have installed all printers on my new Domaincontroler.
But now Iam experienceing slow printing to one of my printers.
I have still the old NT4 box running with the printer shared aswell, and if I print via that server everything works just fine.
(Iam printing big CAD drawings and projects to the printer which is a HP Laserjet 5.)
I have tested with a HP6p printer and it seems to have the same issue.... fast print on NT4 but slow print via 2003.
All settings on each server are the excact same for the printers.
Any ideas why its slower via Windows 2003?
If you need more information please post your questions.
Thanks in advance.
