The Line Printer Remote (LPR) service enables the computer to print to a printer or print server that uses the Line Print Daemon (LPD) service, which is commonly used by UNIX servers.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 2002
Source: Microsoft-Windows-Spooler-LPRMON
Version: 6.0
Symbolic Name: LPRLOG_REGISTRY_ERROR
Message: An error was reported while attempting to initialize the printer port monitor with the list of port information from the following registry key: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\LPR Print Monitor. The Line Printer Remote (LPR) service could not read or write registry settings. This is usually a result of a more significant system problem such as running out of memory or not having the appropriate registry permissions. The LPR printer port monitor may not be correctly configured until the problem is resolved.

Resolve

Restart the server or troubleshoot hardware problems

This problem occurs when the Line Printer Remote (LPR) service cannot read or write registry settings. Typically, this is symptomatic of a more significant system problem. LPR may not be correctly configured until the problem is resolved.

Possible resolutions include:

  • Notify users, and then restart the print server.
  • Use hardware diagnostic utilities, if available, to troubleshoot potential hardware issues with the print device or server hardware.
  • Restore the print server from a stable Windows backup.

Verify

To verify that you resolved the problem, print the document again to a shared printer that uses the Line Printer Daemon (LPD) service. This tests printing using the Line Printer Remote (LPR) service on the client computer.
