I have a Windows XP box set-up as a print server for everyone in the building. Recently I have been having problems with printers randomly going offline. This all started when we installed 2 Server 2008 R2 servers. When the printers go offline I have tried removing the offline printer and adding it again, however I will get an error message saying the print server cannot accept any more connections. The only solution I have found is to restart the print server. At that point I can connect to add printers to client sessions and anyone's printer who was offline comes back online. What is also strange is printers will not go offline for everyone. One person will not be able to print while others can. Any ideas on what I can do to remedy this or at least track down a culprit?
