Windows 7: How to reset a single queue into printer server ?

How to reset a single queue into printer server ?

Hi guys,

A simple question if you don't mind:
Is that possible to reset a single object queue into a print server on Win2008R2 ?

I have around 1400 printer objects into my server and I was wondering if I can do something else than stopping spooler service (which stops ALL my printers...).

With all the other programs attached to my spooler, it takes around 3 minutes to start and stop the all process!
That's too long for my 6000 users and I usually receive at least 20 phone calls in this gap each time!

Any help would be welcome.

With kind regards

Is that possible to have other response than the Google-ad ones here?

Maybe the best answer would have been to say: "No, that's not possible with Microsoft, If you want to do that, choose Novell".

The only way to remove a job in error into a queue is to kill several times the process: "PrintIsolationHost.exe" (if you set your driver into isolation mode)
This will release the handle on the queue which prevent the spooler to delete it after the two attempts.

Thanks for your help!

With kind regards

Redirect printer queue to a different printer?
We have two printers in our network. We had several print jobs queued up for one printer, which ran out of ink. It would be handy if there were a way to redirect the queue to the second printer. Any takers?
