WS2008 R2 Remote Desktop Easy print does not send print job to redirected printer
Posted on 2010-09-21
I have a Windows 2008R2 server setup with Remote Desktop Services. The server is a domain controller. When you print to a redirected printer there is no error, no message, nothing in the event log. The job shows up in the spooler for a split second and then disappears.
I am familiar with the problem in Server 2008 on a Domain Controller. I have granted full control to all users on the server to the c:\windows\system32\spool , c:\windows\system32\printers and c:\windows\temp directories. I have rebooted the server. I can browse to the spool directory or the printers directory and create files as the users.
I've done quite a bit of research and everyone points to the same permissions problem which I have verified is not causing the issue. I believe there is something else 2008 R2 requires but I'm not sure what I'm missing. Any help that can be provided wiould be greatly appreciated.
