All network printers are disconnected and only come back after Restart
Posted on 2007-11-28
During a regular users session, all network printers get disconnected and cant be readded back. Logging off doesnt solve the problem but restarting the computer does. Apears to be windows 2000 only problem. There are about 200 users and only happends to about 10. Printers are there during startup and during their normal use they disapear. I have not check the spooler service, but one machine displayed and spoolsv.exe error.
There is no script that maps printers, users navigate to the print server and right click to add printers. Print server is windows 2000 server. There are about 30 printers attached. There are 4 floors and this happends to only 1 floor and only the corner cubes of one of the floors.
Thanks in advance
