Recently changed the drum and toner and added a print server to make this a network printer. Since these changes, the printer sometimes prints fine and sometimes prints blank pages. If I turn off the printer and then turn it on, it works fine on the first print attempt.

This sounds like an issue with either the toner cartridge or the drum unit. Have either of these consumables been changed recently? This should help identify the likely cause.
If the drum has been changed recently I would recommend cleaning the corona wire. If however the toner has been changed there isn't masses I can recommend in terms of trouble shooting. it may however be worth running off 15-30 pages in the hope of pulling the toner through.
Failing this I would recommend calling Brother technical support in case the issue is hardware related and not the fault of a consumable.
Never used caaned air near a copier. A copier vacuum will **** out the toner. Canned air just makes the problem worse. When changing the drum unit did you change the drum blade ? Try running 50 blank pages to see if it clears up. Good luck.
Please clean the drum and the fuser, also check the toner cartridges if there's any overflown toner powder spilled. The problem is caused when the toner waste tank in the drum is full or overflowing.
check inside the toner door on the right side. there should be a plastic tab which opens the laser shutter when the door is closed. if this is broken then the lase shutter will not open and will produce blank pages.
