Printer sharing


Dawid Mentel


I have very strange problem with MS Windows 2003 Server R2 Standard Edition
Service Pack2.
That server is a print server and is sharing few printers for Windows
clients. One of those printer is HP MFP4100.
The problem is that from time to time that printer becomes un-shared for
unknown reason and has to manually shared again.

Event log does not show anything.

Do you have any idea what to check ?

Thanks in advance.

Enable Informational events in Printers Folder, File, Server Properties,
Advanced in order to get events for this change. It's event 9 and does not
state what changed, just who changed.

Are you using the Microsoft Standard TCP/IP port to connect to the printer?
