Event ID 2007 — LPR Service Status
Applies To: Windows Server 2008
The Line Printer Remote (LPR) service enables the computer to print to a printer or print server that uses the Line Print Daemon (LPD) service, which is commonly used by UNIX servers.
|Product:||Windows Operating System|
|Message:||The Line Printer Remote (LPR) print monitor failed to open the port named %1. This can occur if the server name for this port is incorrect. Printing to this port will fail until the problem is resolved.|
Restart the server or troubleshoot hardware problems
This problem occurs when the Line Printer Remote (LPR) service cannot read or write registry settings. Typically, this is symptomatic of a more significant system problem. LPR may not be correctly configured until the problem is resolved.
Possible resolutions include:
- Notify users, and then restart the print server.
- Use hardware diagnostic utilities, if available, to troubleshoot potential hardware issues with the print device or server hardware.
- Restore the print server from a stable Windows backup.
To verify that you resolved the problem, print the document again to a shared printer that uses the Line Printer Daemon (LPD) service. This tests printing using the Line Printer Remote (LPR) service on the client computer.
