print spooler problem in server 2003
Posted on 2009-02-18
i am facing a problem.
In the network there is server1 as DC, DNS, DHCP, FILE, PRINT server. It is also a node of a cluster of which the other node does not exist, so server1 is the only one.
I installed the application Papercut to control users print jobs.
Recently i uninstalled papercut and when i checked services the service Papercut is in stopping mode and I can't restart the print spoooler service because it states that it also affects the papercut service. After i push button restart for print spooler, then it is trying to restart but nothing happens.
Also I can not log in to the server. When i try it after i give the password there is a simple gray screen trying to enter, but nothing.
Through remote dsktop i can connect to the server normally, but i can not use anything related to print, eg the printer managemenet, printers and faxes .. It freezes the system ...
And of course printers that are set in print server do not work ..
I have problem with my main server which serves everything in the network and I am afraid I will lose it... i don't know what to do..
