Server 2008 R2 Print Server

Last Modified: 2013-12-15
I have a Server 2008 printer server with about 30 HP printers installed on it.

I recently upgraded them all from the previous version of the HP Universal Print driver to the newest 5.1.

I just installed some updates on the server and rebooted the machine.  Now in my print log I see this message for ALL of the printers.

The print spooler failed to share printer Printername with shared resource name Printername . Error 2114. The printer cannot be used by others on the network.

The event ID is 315.

Even though I see this for all of the printers.  I still can connect to them and print to them from other computers.  Why am I getting this message?
