Slow printing in Citrix XenApp environment


Print Server – Windows Server 2008 R2

XenApp Servers – Windows Server 2008\XenApp5

  • Ensure that the Printer driver version number is the same on the Print Server and on the XenApp server
  • If the printers are MFD, make sure Spooling is happening on the printers Hard Disk. This is set on the Print Device itself
  • Disable ‘Enable Advanced Printing Features’ on the printer queue, under the Advanced tab
  • If PDF’s are spooling to 10x the file size, change the ‘Image Compression’ option from Standard to Photo (if it exists in the driver)
