I am using windows server 2003 and Citrix.  I am looking for the user who is sending offensive full color print jobs to a particular printer.  Can I find this info?

Yes... if the print job is originating from the Citrix server, log into that server and open the Event Viewer.  Under the "System" section look for an Event # 10 (probably easiest to sort by event).  Every file that is printed will show the user, date, time, document and printer so it should be very easy to find.

I have no event 10 in the Event Viewer.  Could certain events have been turned off?  The event viewer is showing ALL EVENTS.  If 10's have not been captured, is there another way to find this info?

Is there any solutions to this?  Also, is there a way to turn back on the 10 events so they will show up in the future?
