On a Windows Server 2008 Remote Desktop server, only administrators/domain admins etc, can use the "pause printing" option, for printers installed on the server.

I have gone into devices and printers --> server properties --> security, and given all rights to the user for print management etc. Still the option is grayed out.

Thanks!

If you can, make a user a power user and test.  If that doesn't work, report back.

That is not an option here. This TS is also a DC, thus eliminating the power users local group.

This has to be controlled in GP somewhere.

Sorry, there is no way around it, and there is no GP setting that will allow for this.
