Printer sessions set/deleted in system event viewer
Posted on 2009-05-07
Our office recently installed a new bulk-print multi-function centre. It was installed on our SBS 2003 server and then I simply accessed the server from the client machines to install e.g. \\servername\printers and faxes > right-click printer > connect. Everything OK so far.
Now when I look at the installed printers on the server there's duplicate entries of ALL the printers. It lists the printer name then "on servername (from computername) in session 2. But only from 1 computer.
When I look in the system event viewer it is literally littered with print entries showing information alerts that the printers were created and set and then warnings that it's pending deletion etc.
The only noticable problem from the client perspective is that it takes a while to load the printer properties\preferences pages.
Any help appreciated.
