    Both MP printers (Ricoh, Sharp) will not print from 2008r2 but ok from 2003 server.

    Hello, I am moving our printers onto the 2008r2 server. I have downloaded the correct drivers for the server and installed without any problems, when I print the job goes without any errors but does not actually print anything from the printer. I have tried both PCL5 & 6 drivers and also from an XP computer connecting to the shared printer on the new server but still nothing prints.

    I have been given a security number which I used on the xp computer, this made no difference.

    I can still print from our old 2003 server.

    Any idea whats going on.
