We have a print server running Windows Server 2008. Clients that use Windows XP with a logon script to map have no problems printing. When I test printing to a network printer on a Windows 7 machine, it works fine up to a few machines. As soon as I get 12-15 workstations trying to print, when they log in, they get the yellow exclamation mark and need troubleshooting against the printer name. It is being deployed by group policy. I have tried to deploy it by group policy, group policy preferences, and using a script and I get the same error whatever I try. Does anyone have any suggestions to try and troubleshoot? Once again, Windows XP clients have no issues printing at all. It is only with Windows 7 clients. Thanks
I have found that the spooler is not starting because you can't add the printer manually either.
