Hey guys!

I want to get all my win2k (act as print server) print report but then I have this problem in system log Type: Error; Source: Print; Description: The print Queue Container could not be found because the DNS Domain name could not be retrieved. Error; 54b; Event ID is 33.

My windows 2000 printserver is connected to a domain with windows 2000 server running dhcp.

I wanted it very badly since i get all the print report from system log via a third party software. Anybody help me resolve this problem.

Regards to all and more power to expert exchange.

The print server is a dedicated machine connected to a network using a DHCP.

Looking forward for your response Guys!

For starters give the print server a static IP and put the exclusion in DHCP this will ensure consistent availability.

Secondly, because this print server is DHCP there is a small chance that the DNS server contains a bad entry if the print server leased a different IP and the old one didn't flush.

You should scavenge all DNS records manually after giving the print server a static IP and rebooted it.

Once you have done this let us know if you are still encountering problems.

Hope this helps.

U just configur your printer as network printer and use proper drivers it will work properly and i think i will work properly.

If you have problem on your network then check it?

Just a newbie in Win2K then I properply installed the driver in the print server. I'll try first putting a static IP in the printserver. Then I'll let u know guys.
