I have someone here who has managed to screw up their printers on server 2008 terminal server.

They installed a lexmark printer which he said caused loads of errors so he removed the drivers which then caused all printers to stop working?!?

I have managed to get the local printers working again by just adding the drivers again as it said they were missing.

Though on the redirected printers of the various remote sites using this terminal server now can't print even though they are showing in *control panel* *printers* though when going into properties and print test page its coming up with *test page failed to print* with the error 0x00000057.

Any ideas people ?

Thanks

Are the drivers for the redirected printers still on the server?  What happens if you remove and reinstall one of these drivers on the server, and restart the spooler, before printing a test page?  Is the test page successful?
