  • Dear,

    I have problem that I just built up two ms server 2003 64x std server.Our company has windows xp and window 98se as client workstation.

    We just created two printers on server 2003 64x std and then share out for users.

    Problem:

    We created network printer (share out from server 2003 64x std) for user using windows 98se. When the user print something to network printer through server 2003 64x std, the print job was successful but the message display "printer offline" on win98 printer manager.I need unselect offline work everytime printing.

  • When you share print from the server other than it's compatible OS,

    (ex. Server is Windows Server 2003, and is shared to NT or 9x)

    you need to select the "Other Devices", then select there corresponding OS!!

  • Maybe it's because of the Driver of Printer!

     

    Using the Correct and Newest Driver from the Manufactor!!

     

    Don't Use the original driver by the OS.

  • 1.

    Open Printers and Faxes 

    2.

    Right-click the printer for which you want to install the additional drivers, and then click Properties.

    3.

    On the Sharing tab, click Additional Drivers.

    4.

    In the Additional Drivers dialog box, select the check boxes for the additional environments and operating systems you need, and then click OK.

  • Dear ,

     

    Than k you for information.

    I did your advice but same problem. I just bought and built up new server MS 2003 std x86.

    I try using the new server MS 2003 x86 as prrint server similar before setting up. It is no problem and very well.

    Is Server MS 2003 x64 bug ??

    I also applied service pack 2 to MS 2003 x64 but it haven't any improvement.

  • I have the same problem while I use some kind of printer , ex HP LJ 2300 .

    I don't think it's because of the Printer Driver.

    I have do some test.

    1. It will  work properly when I directly print in Printer Server (Windows Server 2003 SP1)

        It means that the printer driver can work properly. 

    2. It won't work properly while I print in Printer Server's Client .

         By 1+2 , I think Windows Server 2003's Printer Service has some question .

    3. The printer that can work porperly can't work properly after I upgrade Windows Server 2003 SP2. 

         By 1+2+3 , All we can do is waitintg for MS fix this problem.

  • The Poster say question is occured in Windows x64 OS.

    So it is most likely because of Printer Driver.
