I working on a clients newly configured Windows 2008 32-bit server with SP2 applied. Local printers print fine, regardless if they are network printers or shared on a workstation. When users remote in with RDP into a Terminal Server session their printers on the remote end auto-create properly on the server. When a print job is sent to the session printer, it appears in the queue and disappears, but nothing prints.
When I tried to pause the remote printer in the RDP session to do testing, I receive the bang message: Operation could not be completed (Error 0x00000005). Access is denied.
I then reviewed the event log and found the following message:

This looks like a rights issue, but I'm logged in as the Administrator. The same issue occurs with other user accounts as well, regardless if they are admin priv or not.
Does anyone know what this might be caused by before I call Microsoft and open a ticket with them?
