Net Print Job Appears Twice in Print Manager


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows versions 3.0, 3.0a, 3.1, 3.11


If you use a "Microsoft Network or Compatible," and you connect to two network printers on the same server and print to one of them, the print job appears twice in the Print Manager network queue listings.


This is by design. The double listing occurs because of the way the Microsoft Redirector networks handle print queues. The queue is managed on a per server, not per printer, basis. Therefore, both printer listings in Print Manager reflect the same server print queue, and the job is shown twice.
