SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You install the Terminal Services server role on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008.
  • On a client computer, you install a printer that supports the multiple trays configuration.
  • You create a terminal server session to the computer from the client computer.
  • In the terminal server session, you redirect the printer by using the Terminal Services Easy Print feature.
  • In the terminal server session, you try to print a multiple-page document, and you configure the use of multiple trays.
In this scenario, all printed pages are sent to the print tray that is configured for the first page. Therefore, you cannot print a document to multiple trays.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the Terminal Services Easy Print printer driver does not include the tray selection settings when print tickets are created.

Windows Server 2008 file information notes
Important Windows Vista hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, only "Windows Vista" is listed on the Hotfix Request page.

    6.0.600 0 . 20xxxWindows VistaRTMLDR
    6.0.600 1 . 22xxxWindows Vista and Windows Server 2008SP1LDR
    6.0.600 2 . 22xxxWindows Vista and Windows Server 2008SP2LDR
  • Service Pack 1 is integrated into the release version of Windows Server 2008. Therefore, RTM milestone files apply only to Windows Vista. RTM milestone files have a 6.0.0000.xxxxx version number.

MUM files and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
