We have a Windows Server 2003 installation on a single server.
This server has two fax modems - one for send the other for receive.
The Fax Service Manager is installed and faxes are received fine.
Some time ago (we are not sure when) the shared fax printer on the server was deleted.
This means we cannot send faxes and we need to re-install the Fax printer.
However when I goto Printers and Faxes on the server and click Install a local Fax printer I get the following error :
The requested operation cannot be completed. Check the connection to the fax printer and the fax printer configuration.
When I go and look in event viewer System Log there is a warning :
Printer Fax is pending deletion.
I have rebooted the server and get the same result.
I also tried stopping and starting the fax service - same result.
Each time I try and install a local fax printer I get the same error and the Warning is repeated in the System Log.
Any help greatly appreciated.
