When you are running Windows 2000 Server with Terminal Services enabled, you may receive an error message that states that the System log is full. When you view the System log, it may be full of informational events from the Print source. The following informational events are examples of the events you may see:
SOURCE: Print CATEGORY: None EVENT ID: 9 DESCRIPTION: Printer HP LaserJet 4/4M Plus PS 600/LCDPP/Session 1 was set.
SOURCE: Print CATEGORY: None EVENT ID: 15 DESCRIPTION: Printer HP LaserJet 4/4M Plus PS 600/LCDPP/Session 1 was created.
SOURCE: Print CATEGORY: None EVENT ID: 20 DESCRIPTION: Printer Driver HP LaserJet 4/4M Plus PS 600 for Windows NT x86 Version-3 was added or updated. Files:- PSCRIPT5.DLL, PS5UI.DLL, HP4PLUS6.PPD, PSCRIPT.HLP, PSCRIPT.NTF.
These events are logged when a Terminal Services client with a local printer attached connects to a server. The server loads the drivers for the client's local printer to enable the client to print to its local printer from within the client session.
To resolve this issue, adjust the Event log settings or turn off these informational events.
To Adjust the Event log Settings
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Event Viewer.
Right-click the System Log file, and then click Properties.
Click Overwrite as needed, or set a larger maximum log file size.
To Turn Off Informational Events
Go into your printer folder, and then click File.
Click Server Properties.
Click the Advanced tab.
The spooler events can then be turned off.
Note that if you turn off Information Events, you no longer write to the System log when you print documents.
