Wrong print drivers being downloaded to clients from 2k server
Posted on 2002-05-21
I have multiple HP 4500 printers that clients connect to through a print server. The printers have been installed on the server and when you go to their properties/sharing tab/additional drivers button it shows that the drivers for 95&98 have been installed.
When Windows2k clients install the printers as network printers of this print server they can print with no problem. When a 98 client installs this network printer they can't print. When you look at the properties of the printer on the client it appears that they are set to use the 2000 driver (the driver name is the same as it is on the 2k box). If I install the 98 driver on the client manually the printer will work.
How can I get the client to automatically install the correct driver during initial installation?
When I deleted one of the printers from the server and reinstalled it on the server it automatically shows that the 95/98 drivers have been installed for sharing.
Thanks for the help.
