windows server 2012 print server very slow printing


Since I've upgraded my File/Print server to Server 2012, I'm finding that my Windows 7 clients are printing extremely slow. It seems to happen with the HP Print Drive more than anything.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

I'd probably look at updating the drivers on the server before looking at anything else.  Make sure you have the latest drivers for the device and remove/install the printer to the clients after you've updated the driver to force them to install it.

How slow is slow?  Are you talking 30 seconds vs 15 seconds or are you talking minutes?
