Unable to connect to W2K3 Print queue

I have it setup so that all users can add print queue.  We used to print via IP but now that i have a print server I removed the IP printers.  When I am trying to add the printers by going to \\PrinterServer|PrinterName, I am getting an access denied.

There are no local policies on this machine.  I can add print queues fine on other machines.  My guess is that I should blow away some regsitry keys.

Any ideas where to start?

Makesure Printer server and your machine in same domain.
If it not first try to login to that machine's share folder and then try to add the printer. As I feels printer server or your machine is now in different nettworks(domain or workgroups).
Now If your not login to the domain(your loging to the machine) , try to login to the domain.

go to \\servername
do you get authentication prompt? If so pass-through authentication isn't working, are there user accounts with same passwords on the print server (irrelevant if on domain)

I got it to work by going into the registry and search for the print server name.
It shows up under hkcu\printers

I deleted all instances in the reg where the print server appeared. Did a reboot and everything worked.

Thanks for everyones help
