We noticed that when printing any PDF file, that it would take forever
before the print job got handed over to the spooler. A 5 page PDF with
just tables and text took at least 3 minutes before the job got handed
over to the spooler.We assumed it was due to the fact that we just
upgraded all clients to 7.0.3 of Reader. It was also during this time
that we upgraded to OES.

Today, I thought I would try something different. I created a direct
LPR port to our HP 4050 printer and submitted the same job to the LPR
printer. The job got handed immediately to the spooler. I also upgraded
to 7.0.5 to see if that solved the problem. Printing via LPR or even
Windows Print Services, results in the jobs getting handed over
immediately to the spooler, but NDPS assigned printers, cause a huge

The problem only seems to occur with PDF files.
I'm not a NDPS expert, but would appreciate if anybody could point me
in the direction I need to look, I will come back with any results from
my tests.
