This is preliminary documentation and subject to change.
Each print server has a single print spooler service, which manages all the print jobs and print queues on that server.
The following is a list of all aspects that are part of this managed entity:
Print Router Status relates to the print router function of the print subsystem. The print router determines which print provider to call based on information supplied with the print job.
Print Server Status controls basic operations such as initializing the spooler, creating threads, and reading the registry.
Printer Connections relates to printer connections deployed to users or computers using Group Policy.
