Terminal Server 2008 Printing Issue

Last Modified: 2013-03-22
We just purchased a new HP 1606DN laser jet professional printer.  We are trying to get it to print for one of our client computers.

We are running Terminal Server 2008 64 Service Pack 2.  We have many local HP printers currently working with out issue using the HP Easy Print Driver.  The client computer can print fine to these other printers, just not the HP 1606.

I have ensured Everyone has full permission to the spool folder and sub folders.

I have installed the HP 1606 print driver on the server as well.  However, the client uses the East print driver for redirecting the 1606.  

Is there a way for me to use NOT use the easy print driver just for this 1 printer?  Easy print works great for all other printers just not the 1606.

I did not see any error messages in the event viewer.  

When we print a page or test page, Termial Server says the print job failed.

Clients are running Windows 7 with RDP client 6.17.
