    Thumbs up Print Manager 6... Help

    Hi there,

    I have just installed Print manager this morning having being requested to by our ICT Co-ordinator to try to cut down printing usage.. and i'm having a really big problem..
    I've installed it as normal and created two limits on Pupils and Teachers so they can only print so much per year.
    and it's just not picking up that people are printing..
    its asif when people print it totally bypasses the print manager.
    Please help.

    Is the Print Manager Plus service running? You can check this within the console itself.

    I'd also recommend you stop and start the spooler service too.

    You may find this useful. Copy and paste into notepad and save as Printers.bat on the server (system drive ideally):

    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    NET STOP "TCP/IP Print Server"
    NET STOP "Print Manager Plus"
    NET STOP spooler
    NET START "TCP/IP Print Server"
    NET START "Print Manager Plus"
    Pause

    What printers are you using?

    I have a problem with v5 where HP 3600's can't be managed though it works with every other device.

    Are the printers set to spool or print directly to the printer?

    How are you deploying the printers? Group Policy or using scripts? Are network printers installed in a standard way, or do they point to a locally created port?

    You have installed the client end on the PCs that are printing, haven't you?

    I always install the EUIT on workstations, but I didn't think it would stop PMP from reporting print jobs? Unless it sends information to the PMP database?

    I have had problems with EUIT after an update in the summer term - I forget the versions involved and am at home now, so can't check. The end result, after a lengthy phone call from PMP support in the US (fortunately they called me) and them remoting in to our network, was that we ended up using the newer version of the PMP on the server and the previous version of EUIT. It shouldn't have worked, but it did!

    adameye, I can let you have the email address of the guy I contacted if you want it - it'll have to be tomorrow though as that's at school too!

    @elsiegee40 - I hate to disagree but we have had PMP installed here for years and none of our computers have the EUIT. We are now on version 6 and the only issue we have at the moment is the system not refreshing quotas after a weekend like it should.
