Use the Citrix StressPrinters utility to test print drivers before they are introduced into the XenApp farm. A test XenApp server must be used during stress testing to ensure the new print driver is not introduced into the production farm prior to successful testing.
addprinter64.exe -name “StressTest” -driver “HP Color LaserJet 2600n” -conc 5 -iter 10 -delay 500 -port “test”
To test a different print driver simply replace the text “HP Color LaserJet 2600n” with the exact print driver name as displayed within Print Management.
The symptoms of a failed stress test are one or more of the following:
Note that a successful test may still show warning as shown below:
If a print driver fails the stress test go back to the vendor’s web site and hunt around for an alternative driver and try again. While this process does take some time to complete, the resulting stable XenApp farm is worth the effort.
