Best way to manage network printers in SBS08 envoirnment?
Posted on 2014-04-28
we have a network of about 30 users, Windows server 2008 running as DHCP server, DNS, AD and Exchange.
We also have a Toshiba e-Studio 5540C printer for all users to print to.
At the moment the printer is installed on the server via a standard TCP/IP port using the Toshiba Universal Driver 2 v7.123. The printer is shared and listed in the directory.
Users (using Windows 7 Pro 64bit) then add the network printer on each their machine, the drivers automatically installs and they are good to go.
At the moment we are experiencing various printing issues such as documents getting stuck in the queue in "Spooling" mode, slow printing, computer freezes when users presses print.
Is the above setup the best way?
