    Default Shared printer on WHS

    Hi, so installed hundreds of printers before on 2003 server, is there any secret with WHS?...
    Installed printer on WHS with 2003 drivers, it shared automatically, clients created printer automatically, send test print and a need to restart the spooler on WHS before it prints?

    Whats up with that?...WT?

    Edit - the server is currently doing a backup, do you think its too busy?

    edit #2 - just noticed NIC usage @ almost 100% - only 100MB router

    Default Re: Shared printer on WHS

    Okay, resolved.............

    Solution to stalled print jobs on WHS :

    1. Login to your WHS via Remote Desktop
    2. Start / Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Services
    3. Find the “Print Spooler” service, double-click to view properties
    4. Select the “Log On” Tab
    5. UNCHECK “Allow service to interact with desktop”
    6. Click OK
    7. Restart the service
