Hi Experts,

  My users are having intermittent problems with a printer in one department. It will randomly refuse to print, but if I print a test page to it from the server that it is shared from, it will solve the problem for a time.  
  This is  a TCP/IP printer installed with the latest drivers and shared from Server 2008 R2, pushed by group policy preferences. I have 6 other printers setup and shared the exact same way, without these problems.
