Printer "unshares" itself

    Running W2K3 print server with about 160 printers. Occasionally, a printer
    will just stop sharing itself and when I try to share it back I get an
    access denied error, or, it will let me share it but then it automatically
    unshares itself again.

    Anybody experience this problem? Anybody know the "fix"?

    Are your clients running Windows 2000 professional? I am experiencing the
    same issue when users try to connect to print queues and a "access denied"
    message is posted. I notice the printer unshares itself. What I have done
    temporarily is reshare the printer queue, save the changes and then delete
    that printer. I will once again readd that same printer and that issue will
    be resolved.

    I hope this helps a bit.

    I had a similar problem with the print queues, I had to remove the everyone group, and apply and close then go back in and add it back again to fix the issue on each print queue.
