Printing job stuck pending but a restart of Print connecter service gets them printed

Occasional Contributor

Hi Team,

I'd like to report that we have seen lots of issues with print jobs stuck in "Pending" status on the Universal Print queue. All the printers are hosted via the Universal Print Connector.

If we restart the "Print Connector Service" on the local printer server, the pending jobs print out with a few seconds. Is the Cloud loosing contact with connector?

We are running connector version "PrintConnector.Proxy.0.86.7489.21705"

Any advice would be great.
