Xenserver 5 and Citrix Presentation Server 3 Printing

I have a new weird issue happening with all my HP LJ Printers that are networked in different branches. I created a standard tcp/ip port and gave it a static IP Address. The driver versions are the exact same as my physical server running same citrix/server etc. Whenever anyone prints they get blank pages and nothing else. I believe something is causing this via the xenserver 5 server, because the physical server does not have this issue. I am new to xenserver and not sure where to look. I know Xenserver 5.5 is now out and that may be my fix. But doubtfull any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have not worked with Presentation 3 much mainly 4.0, 4.5 (now called XenApp 5.0).    I found that setting up a print policy following the link here resolved all my printing issues:

Client   Printers/Auto-creation       --> Enabled              --> Auto-create   all client printers
Client   Printers/Legacy client printers              --> Enabled              --> Create   old-style client printers                
Client   Printers/Printer properties retention              --> Enabled              --> Held in   profile only if not saved on client                
Client   Printers/Print job routing              --> Enabled              --> Always   connect indirectly as a client printer                
Client   Printers/Turn off client printer mapping              --> Not Configured
Drivers/Native   printer driver auto-install              --> Enabled              --> Do not   automatically install drivers                
Drivers/Universal   driver              --> Enabled              --> Use   universal driver only if requested driver is unavailable
