We currently use Windows Printing via Spools with papercut on our Mac machines. When upgrading to big sur from Catalina this completely breaks, when you try and print to the printer it immediately errors out without even a solid error message just "Error printing" in every Application. Has anyone encountered this?
@tycollins I know that Windows is pushing out an update to fix a glitch with the Windows Print Spooling service, which may affect your issue. For us, the prints went through Papercut, to the printer, but would print just an error page. After re-installing the printer, things seemed to go through just fine.
I'm not sure if this info helps you or not, just throwing in my 1/50th of a dollar, ;)
@tycollins We have into this issue at our site using network printers attached to a Windows Print Server. I was able to deploy a script that runs kdestroy on all accounts on login for machines running Big Sur and printing works fine after the user re-authenticates. We have a support case open with Apple Enterprise Support about this issue now and I am still waiting for them to give us further details.
