While I haven't seen ths specific issue before, it may be part of a class of
issues around drivers setting data associated with the printer instance on
the share. Often called the data blob. When the blob isn't set properly on
the share, drivers can malfunction in strange and unpleasant ways. My
i. Install the driver locally and use the MS property page for the print
share to load the driver again. Set some of the data properties (eg. font or
duplexer). This may force the blob to get set.
ii. Alternatively, you could change your print architecture to use the
standard MS PostScript driver and Ghostscript to convert the print jobs to
the printer's language (PCL). The PostScript driver appears to avoid blob
related issues. A good description of this works can be found at:
There are risks and costs to a program of action.
But they are far less than the long-range risks and
costs of comfortable inaction.
