Logging off Remote Desktop Session on Win2K3 Server sometimes stops network printing.
Posted on 2004-09-17
I have a Windows 2003 Server(Standard Edition) which is currently running File and Print services and Active Directory for a company of around 60 users.
We have 3 networked HP Plotters and a couple of laser printers shared from this server all using recent drivers.
Here is the problem,
After finishing with a remote desktop session on the Win2k3 server I log off as you would expect.
Once I logoff, sometimes, but only sometimes, this will temporarily cause the users to not be able to print and they receive an error message
"RPC Server Unavailable".
If I then log back on to my remote desktop session network printing starts working again.
Anyone ever seen this behaviour before or have any ideas on how to resolve?
Many thanks in advance.
