Citrix Printing issue: Event ID 6161, Error code 1450
Posted on 2006-03-25
Hi, I have Citrix Metaframe XPa FR2 running on a Windows 2000 Server (SP4). All clients are having an intermittent printing issue where they can't print (having been able to print fine earlier in the day). An error with event id 6161 is logged by windows with the following error:
The document Untitled - Notepad owned by administrator failed to print on printer Client\FSDEV02#\HP Officejet 7200 series [UPD:PCL4]. Data type: NT EMF 1.008. Size of the spool file in bytes: 1028. Number of bytes printed: 0. Total number of pages in the document: 1. Number of pages printed: 0. Client machine: \\servername. Win32 error code returned by the print processor: 1450.
A search on the web suggests that error code 1450 relates to NO_SYSTEM_RESOURCES. I have not been able to find a consistent way of resolving the issue. Logging off the client and logging it back on doesn't always cure the problem. Restarting the print spooler doesn't cure the problem. Sometimes logging off a separate client altogether cures the problem but the example above was produced with only one client logged in as administrator. Incidentally, logging off the session that produced the above error and logging back on cleared the problem, but I suspect it will be back again later today.
Any help on this will be much appreciated. Thanks
