Good Afternoon Experts,
I'm having an issue that is very puzzling. Until recently everything has been working fine with users logging in via a terminal server session to access applications. This week, suddenly all applications hang when attempting to print. Even trying to stop the print spooler seems to take ages where last week it was a snap. I also can't seem to connect to a printer that is shared on the DC, Windows says it is connecting but the printer never does connect nor does it time out. I can literally walk away for hours and it will still be trying to connect to the printer.
The other thing, even trying to open printers from the start menu takes almost 5 minutes, as it gradually shows the progress bar going up and then as it reaches the end just freezes and I'm forced to close it via task manager.
Any idea as to what could have happened to alter the characteristic of the terminal server so drastically?
