reboot causes old print jobs to print


J

John

Everyone:

I have a windows 2000 server, sp4, which serves as a
print server for a Laserjet 4000 with a jetdirect card.
Everytime I reboot the Windows server, old print jobs
start printing out on the HP. The HP isn't storing the
jobs, because they are all listed in the queues on the
Windows server before being sent to the HP. I then have to
shut off the printer and delete the jobs out of the queue.
Deleting the files out of \system32\spool\printers gets
rid of those documents being printed on another reboot,
but any new jobs that are printed after clearing those
files are printed again upon reboot. Any ideas???? Thanks.

John

I have run into the same issue with the common thread being the HP Jetdirect print server, but on Windows XP instead. Has anyone seen this problem and found a solution.

If this is an HP driver turn off Bidirectional on the Ports tab of the
printer properties.
