A print server is installed on a dedicated Windows 2000 Server SP4 with updated patches. 68 different printers configured. Users choose a network printer. Small jobs print fine, however at month end we print large jobs of over 700 pages. On these large jobs the first few hundred pages print okay. Then suddenly the job starts re-printing again from page one! If we don't cancel the job in time it can reprint several times over and never end.
Large jobs are printed to a HP5200 or HP2300 or Xerox 5500. I've updated drivers and tried PS and PCL5 & 6.
Any ideas what's happening.
