Why the sudden printing is very slow on 2003 server?
Posted on 2010-08-23
Our prinserver that runs print is a dinosaur. Is also a DC, DNS, DHCP, file and application. It is slow but two weeks ago the print services stopped and the event log showed that it ran out of paging space and a memory leak. I did a restart and that brought the services back but not with the same speed.
Now, most files take around 5 minutes to get printed and I don't have the slightest idea why... I did a search on here and some suggested that moving the spooling folder will improve performance, I did that and now its 2 minutes instead of 5... still not a click a way.
