JSI Tip 1798. Event ID 2005 when LPR printing?

When you configure a LPR printer and then print a document, your event log contains:

Event ID: 2005
Description: LPR print monitor failed to open a temporary file while spooling output to port ip address: the system may be low on disk space or the Spool directory is write-protected.

The fix is to grant Change permission for Domain Users on the Spool share and Spool folder.
