Windows Server 2008 R2 log spooler events

On Server 2008 I could right click in the Printers window and get into Server Properties for the print server.  Here I could check a box to log the print spooler events so that all print jobs are logged.  Where is this in Server 2008 R2?

Found it:
If you go to Event Viewer -> Applications and services logs -> Microsoft -> Windows -> Prinservice
Right click Operational log and choose enable log.

"I believe the logging/auditing is enabled by default.  Purely a hunch as I have no reference material to back that up, but I did compare the settings on a 2008 server box with a R2 box and they are indeed different.  Anyway, on the R2 server, look in the Event Viewer under Applications and Services Logs/Microsoft/Windows/PrintService.  You might also find this article about the new features in Print Management helpful: "
