2003 Server Print Server - Windows Server

On our Windows 2000 print server, the system event log displays the user that printed each doent. On our Windows 2003 print server, SYSTEM is displayed as the user for each print job. Is there a way to make it show the user that printed the doent?...

    Hi Homer,

    I don't think so, the only way to tell the owner is by reading the
    desription of the print job ie: Doent 25829 mydoc.doc owned by USERID
    was printed on HP etc. etc.

    I guess you'd have to use the Find feature in Event Viewer and input the
    user name and source of print? /shrug

    Too bad, we currently have a NT 4.0 server doing our printing but are in
    the process of moving to a 2003 print server, that really does make it a
    little more bersome to view details on jobs for a particular user.
    Hopefully someone is able to provide a solution to revert back to the old
    sk00l method :)

    Is there anyone at Microsoft monitoring this? Do they have any insight on
    how to restore this functionality. We have about 900 printers that are now
    very bersome to gather data from.
