Look into switching to Poppler (versus Ghostscript) or pre-processing/converting your documents in your print workflow.

So now you can do this with a raw file. Run pdf2ps with a representative file...

Likely a ghostscript issue... - Would you be able to run this from the command line (lp -d printer name file.pdf) and possibly pull an strace of the process?

comment HP Smart Array P410 Stuck in Ready for Recovery 00.0%
This is why I'm saying you may have a Supermicro drive backplane issue. The controller hasn't failed, but having problems with multiple disks at the same time would point to the drive backplane; the common electrical interface shared among the disks. Have you tried powering everything off... removing power cables, then starting the server again? It may actually help here.

The Samsung drive won't work in a Gen8 ProLiant server because of firmware protections.
