Limit of print queues on Win2008 server
Posted on 2013-06-06
Does anyone know whether there is a limit or recommended number of print queues one can have on a Win2008 Virtual server?
We have hundreds of print queues on our print server with thousands of users submitting print jobs, and multiple printer models installed meaning lots of different printer drivers.
The print spooler service stops periodically and some print queues just wont allow to print. We have a night script which flushes out the print queues and restarts the spool service, but I don't think this is the best was to stabilise our print environment.
I'm thinking the number of print queues might be hurting us?
