I have installed a new print server running Windows Server 2003, SP1. There are a variety of printers installed on this server, but most are HP. Most of the drivers are PCL6. The workstations that connect to these printers are either W2KSP4 or XPSP2.
Since installing this new print server, many people have reported that their print jobs print even pages in ascending order first followed by odd pages in descending order. If the document has an odd number of pages, it will insert a blank page. Some of these printers have duplexers, others do not. No one is telling the printers to print in this manner. I have installed the drivers as I have on all other print servers, the only difference is this server is running W2K3 server vs W2K.
