Printjobs stay in queue 'sent to printer' Windows Server 2008 R2

clock september 23, 2013 10:21 by author Hans Straat
In the printenvironment I manage I had the complaint that from time to time a printer reprinted all the past jobs. After looking into this issue I noticed that the printqueue was building up rapidly to over 300 jobs in the queue all with the message 'sent to printer'. It turned out that the security group 'Creator Owner' with permission Manage Documents was missing on the printer that was having the issues. You can rapidly set permissions on printers with SetACL from Helge Klein.

Might you have noticed that we where not resolvable with DNS lookup for a period of 4 days, the registar where I hosted my DNS is no longer responsive and bloked bij SIDN in the netherlands. Now we run our DNS at a dutch registar. We hope you didn't mis us much :) and like always you can't react because of all those spammers. E-mail is possible however.
