Windows 2008 - Unable to print or manage printers
Posted on 2009-07-06
I have a newly installed VM running Windows Server 2008, 64-bit. I am unable to print from this server or via this server from a client. I cannot delete printers either. When I send a print job, it goes to the spool on the printer (which says ready) and then the status changes to "Printing". After a period of time it'll change to "Error".
I cannot delete the print job or the printer. Bouncing the server or the print spooler service doesn't help either.
I tried re-importing the printers with the Print Migrator - no dice.
I have another VM running the same setup and printing works fine.
There isn't much in the event log indicating problems. Short of rebuilding the server, is there anything I can do to test. Is there any "extended" logging I can turn on?
