    Anyone have any expeirnce of one network printer being sent jobs by two
    machines with a queue on each for the same printer? I'm trying to convince
    some people that that is a bad idea but need to back it up with hard
    evidence. One server will have windows server 2003 x64 bit and one windos
    server 2003 x32 bit. Both will have the printer installed with the same
    priority and schedule etc. I think it's a world of pain ready to happen.

    What do you think?

    I think it should work just fine.
    I've recently set up a HP colour laser with two separate print queues - one
    full colour and the other B&W
    This works without issue

  3. For fault tolerance we have two print servers at sites miles apart, each has
    over two hundred and fifty printers both pointing to the same devices w/o

    I have two color plotters that each have a "Bond" and a "Photo" print
    queue. It doesn't seem to be a problem. But they are on the same server.
