On a new deployment of Citrix , the Print Spooler would crash and then stop. This means you cannot remove any errored drivers. You will need to reset the Print Spooler manually in the registry

Stage 1

  1. Go into the registry by typing REGEDIT into the run dialog box
  2. Export
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print Key as a backup
  3. Navigate to the following keys:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environment\Windows NT x86  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows x64
  4. In these keys, there should be two subkeys
    Drivers ( Version 3 and Version 4 )
    Print Processors
  5. Delete Any Physical Printer Drivers you have added ( easier to re-add these then reinstalling Doc Converters )
  6. Try Starting Print Spooler to see if this fixes it

Stage 2

  1. In Explorer, rename everything in this folder
    c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86
    and c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\x64
  2. Try Starting Print Spooler to see if this fixes it

Stage 3

  1. Navigate to the following key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors
  2. In this key, there should be 7 subkeys
    BJ Language Monitor
    Local Port
    Microsoft Document Imaging Writer Monitor
    Microsoft Shared Fax Monitor
    Standard TCP/IP Port
    USB Monitor
    WSD Port
  3. If there are any extra keys, export them and delete them.
  4. Try Starting Print Spooler to see if this fixes it

There is also an application that can help you with this https://github.com/jdickson289/Print-Reset-Tool/

If you have a server which isn’t syncing and there is an Active Alert on the VPG Page stating the VM is powered off and you have confirmed it is on, try the following.

 
Log into ZertoServer – Stop the Zerto Virtual Manager service. From the following location, rename the following folders to “orignalName”_backup; PublicCloudReflection,VCDReflection & VCenterReflection. Start the Service. New folders should appear and start populating.
 

Migrate the server from one host to another & refresh the Zerto management page. The alert for the server being offline should be gone,

Sometimes Paper Size of Trays of a 4350 printer are getting randomly changed from A4 to Custom , which means when users next print to it , the printer asks to confirm the Tray for printing ( not automatic)

 image001

This is caused when users refill the printer tray with paper , after shutting the tray it asks them to confirm the paper type. If they click the Green Button ( blue arrow ) it will reset this to Custom. They need to be pressing the Back button to leave this to A4
