Can't print to some network printers

Bill Eversole 1 Reputation point


I am a domain admin on a terminal server I manage. We have several dozen AD printer groups. I cannot print a Windows test page to some of the printers after removing everyone from the security tab of certain printer instances. The print job hits the print queue and disappears. I have even tried to add my AD user explicitly to the security tab, but it still doesn't print until I add everyone back to the security tab. Some printers don't have the issue.

Any ideas?
