Hi ,
we have a citrix server and it used to see all 120 printers in the company. Today i was told that the server doesnt have any printer isnatlled. I restarted the spooler  (net start spooler) and i saw the printers. By the time i went to the user's desk the printers were gone. I did the same thing from his desk and the printers came up. When i tried to add a new printer i got the message 'the subsystem is unavailable cannot add printer due to lack in resources.  I pressed F5 to refresh and indeed all printers were gone.

Any ideas ?

If the print spooler service is no starting correctly it can help to delete old spool files from the

C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS

folder on the server.  Verify that the spooler service is stopped and then check the contents of this folder.
