    We have a Server 2000 setup as a printer server with 10 printers connected
    via TCP port. 1 of the printers, a HP 6p printer is always getting stuck in
    Deleting a printer job.

    Is there something misconfigured on the print server?

    How do we delete the job without a reboot?

    Try stopping and re-starting the Spooler & LPR services. That usually
    clears hung "Delete"s for me.

    The only problem with that solution is you have to be a administror of the
    printer server.

    Is there a Microsoft KB article, on how to diagnose the cause on why the
    print server is stuck "Deleting" a print job.
