Hi
I have a 2008 clustered print server and every so often it reports back randomly saying "printer offline" and the queue starts to back up, restarting the print spooler fixes the issue but it will happen again. Snmp is not blocked and the printers report to be ok on their staus page, the printers do not appear to be at fault.

On the printer port, uncheck the SNMP box. That should correct the problem.
