Hi all,
Have a fully updated server 08 standard machine running rdp, local printers and the session printers do not print.  You can watch the print cue accept the job, but the printers never print.

Only affects rdp users, other local machines can print fine to the same printers, any thoughts?? I have never seen this before.

Have the same issues - therefore (for the peace of mind) I've installed required printers on the server (that is domain ones). Don't have that many and all the RDP users work in the company...

hmm well the thing is the printers worked last week, so what could have changed??  They show up on the server, and when you print you can see the "0" go to a "1" and then back to 0....but no paper ever comes out of the printers.

And what about Event Viewer? Does it say anything about the spooler?
