Shared Printer Error

I have an Win2003 server, AD domain. There are several XP-Pro client
systems. A shared printer is on one XP system. Permission allow Everyone to
Print & Manage both Docs & Printers. From another XP system, logged in as
domain\admin_user I can print. Logged in as domain\std_user I can't. The
std_user can set up the printer i.e, Add Printer & set it's properties but
any attempt to print results in the queue showing Error Printing. The same
if the user is logged on to the server (to test this).

How do I find what the error is?????
Printer Server properties are set to log errors. Event viewer only shows a
warning - drivers updated or color profile files updated.

I even tried adding the user to the Administrators group just to see if that
was it - still couldn't print. Created a new std_user & am getting the same
nonsense.

Suggestions? Pointers to documentation to help figure this out?

TIA,
Dale

I was able to finally get the print server to log the error in event log.
For whatever reason, I cleared the server log setting, restarted the system
& set them again. They aren't much help though. So far, I haven't been able
to trace any useful info with regard to them. BTW - the user in question
(rich) has local & network logon rights to the print server machine & is a
member of Domain Users & Print Operators. The spool folder have the
recommended security rights.

AD & Group policy are great when they work - but a real PIA when there's a
problem, sigh.

Still hoping for suggestions....

This might work..
I had the same problem (twice actually, but was able to solve it by following the instructions of a thread at http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/thread-1568855.php, plus another thing.
Basic Gist:

(assuming the computer with the printer attached is registered in the domain and you can print from locally from that computer, and the printer is added to the active directory.)

1. Make sure on the local computer that the permissions are correct for the printer, and also the spool directory (windows/system32/spool). For me, I'd have thought that the permissions would include domain users, etc since the computer was in the domain, but they were there. So i added them, and then made sure all the files in the underlying directories were the same permission.

2. After saving the permissions, I was able to add the printer for more user from the active directory (domain user, not domain admin). But then for some reason I couldn't add more. (ARG!)

3. After playing with it more, I tried restarting the print spooler service on the local machine (run-->services.msc-->print Spooler (restart)).

4. After that I was able to add all the other users.

I suppose that after changing the permissions, i could have restarted the machine and that would have worked too. Since I haven't had this permission problem occur in all my implementations, I'm guessing that the way I added the computer to the domain didn't do everything it was supposed to (I think i just went to My Computer (properties), and joined the domain there... but not sure).


Anyhoo, after that, i've had no problem accessing the printer. Good luck all!
