    Print Management - Clients cannot print

    Setup:

    Server: Windows Server 2008 R2 with only Print Management role installed
    Client: Windows 7 Ent - 32Bit
    Printers: OKI C5650

    I have added the printers to R2 with boththe x86 & x64 drivers, shared them and deployed them to a GPO as "Per Machine"
    The client corerctly picks up the printer assignment after a GPO Refresh and reboot

    I try and print a test page from the client - it shows in the clients print queue and in Print Mangement Console but the document never arrives at the printer.

    I do a test print FROM Print Management console on the server - it prints out immediately..

    The only time the client prints is when I connect it driectly to the printers IP address..
    I have rebuilt the server to no avail..

    Anyone got any clues?

    The only thing I can think of doing is downgrading the Server to 32Bit Windows 2008 and trying again...

    Both 32bit abnd 64bit drivers work, just not when connected to the share...

    Right I finally resolved this issue..
    I downgraded to Windows 2008 x86 - though now don't think I really needed to.

    All I did was remove the tick from the "Render print jobs on the client computer" option in the printer sharing tab...

    ok thanks for letting us know. I swapped a lot of our print queues over half term, it'll be interesting to see whether we have this problem. i tested a few from the workstations and they seemed ok.
