After installing Universal print driver compatible with server 2008 r2 x64 OS I added the printer to the workstations and everything worked fine. Now I have a problem when printing several copies of a document it prints the 1st page and on the 2nd the printer stops and asks to load paper to Tray 1 even though it is not in use! and then when I press the green button to load paper from tray 2 instead of tray 1 it starts to use the duplex although I didnt choose the duplex option when I printed the document!
1) The default printing settings are to load papers from Tray 2 defined as A4.
2) The tray size in the printer is set to A4 size.
3) Settings in the printer itself are:
Menu > Printing > Default paper size=A4
Override A4/LETTER=YES/NO (tried both)
> Configure Device > System Setup > Tray Behavior>Use requested tray=Exclusively
> Paper handling > Tray 2 size=A4
Tray 2 type=Plain
it seems like no matter what setting will I change (whether in the print server itself or in the printer settings in the workstation) it'll just ignore them.
ALSO, I do not understand how the rest of the Laserjet printers are able to "keep" their original native driver in the x64 server 2008 environment and if I try to install original driver for 4600 or some other printer it does not let me and then I must use the Universal Print driver which makes my life a living hell.
As you can see in photo 111.jpg I do not have an option to choose "NOT INSTALLED" for tray 1 in the "Installable Options", only in the "Form to tray assignment".
I hope someone who has experience in this matter will shed some light on this.
