Print Jobs print in the wrong order

    I've just finished a project to migrate printing from our NT server to new
    2003 servers. This was accomplished by using the Microsoft Print migration
    tool.

    Some users have noticed a problem where by print jobs are printing in the
    wrong order. Investigation shows that the problem happens on various printers
    between the two print servers, and happens whether it's one user printing
    many jobs or many users printing only a few jobs each.

    I've checked the basics, but I'm at a loss to how this could occur, this
    wasn't a problem on the old NT4 servers.

    Investigation shows that one user printed 5 jobs with 1 or 2 pages, a user
    printed a 13 page document after this. The queue showed the correct order
    initially but the last job jumped 2 places at the queue by the time it was
    actually printed.

    Please help!

    Have you set printer priorities?

    The users only have permission to print and can't manage the prints.
    I have checked on each PC locally but there is no print priority set in the
    registry.
    The problem occurs even if one user prints many jobs, so unless an
    application sets a higher printer priority then print priority would be
    unlikely to cause the problems, but who knows.
    The problem occurs even if all prints are from the same application.

    Anymore ideas?
