HP printers on server cause crash
Just incase anyone else has this now or in the future we have found HP TCP/IP drivers cause a rather large memory leak.
We have had a server falling over with a complete freeze, not able to log on physically or remotely. Afterwards it was saying that there was no non-paged memory pool left.
We finally got a chance to track it down with arious tools and found it was the printers on that server using the HP TCP/IP port.
Solution: Recreate all the ports as Standard TCP/IP Ports and reasign the printers to them instead. Then the HP ports can be deleted.
Ok, countdown to the first person to say "Didn't you know this all ready?!"

I didn't know it (but then I don't use HP printers :-))
In general, if you can use standard tcp/ip to connect to the printer then I would always do this - the more stuff you add to your server, the more chance you have of something going wrong!

I think the reason nobody ever found this before now is that most folks have to use the standard (non-HP) TCP/IP Port for printer connection anyway as it solves most of the issues with HP printers.
Thanks for sharing though... well worth knowing.
