Re: Won't rpint until reboot
When I stop and re-start the spooler the file prints but this is annoying and
i have no idea what is causing that to happen. I've checked all the security
things I can find but see nothing that looks like it would cause the issue.
I do notice the when I look at the file in the queue it shows the Owner as
Home whereas on the system it does print with no problems from the file shows
with an Owner of Guest. Any idea how to change the Owner assigned to the
file in the queue or how that is determined?
