How do you add a printer to a server domain?
Posted on 2004-10-19
We've have Windows Small Business Server 2000 installed on our server. Last Friday when I was out of the office, one of our HP printers suddenly wouldn't print. Through troubleshooting efforts I've found that the printer is no longer listed in the domain. I've tried to add the printer back in to the domain in AD but I get the message, "this printer cannot be published. To publish printers on Windows 2000 computers, use the printers folder."
I'm a real newbi at all of this, so I need help knowing what to do. I can't 'Add printer' from the Start - Printers - Add printer, unless the printer is tied to the domain.
Please be specific in your explanation, as I said I'm very new at this.
Thanks for your time.
