Canceling items out of a printer queue
Posted on 2006-06-09
Ok, maybe this is a stupid question but here it goes anyways. More time than I care to think about someone tries to print to a printer on our network and for whatever reason that print job hangs. Neadless to say that whenever anyone else tries to print jobs it gets queued after.
Now when I log onto the server with the printer and cancel the print job it just hangs with the status of “Deleting – Printing”…
Now here is the question: Is there any way to force the removal of a print job from the printing queue without restarting the server? Or is it so that whenever a print job hangs like this you are pretty much SOL and only have one option – restart the server?
