Server - crashed. backed up printer queues. Rebuilt box, reapplied

Something in that didn't work and the ques couldn't not match their
ports. We got them remapped and now we can only print smaller files
(all queues are plotters). Large files fail with:

The document test owned by USERID failed to print on printer PLOTTER1.
Data type: NT EMF 1.008. Size of the spool file in bytes: 65536. Number
of bytes printed: 0. Total number of pages in the document: 1. Number
of pages printed: 0. Client machine: \\10.10.10.x. Win32 error code
returned by the print processor: 0. The operation completed

I've just applied sp2 and I'll see if that fixes it - any suggestions
in the meantime?

uncheck Enable advanced printing feature
in printer properties, advanced.

send a large from a client and see if that prints.

I'd also reinstall all the drivers that are not shipped with the OS.
