New build results in fully qualifed DNS name being added to the printer name
Posted on 2006-04-19
We have a new build of windows xp being rolled out and it is causing us a major printing issue!
When we add a printer via the control panel in the old build it would give us:
GBSQP204-HPLJ8001 on GBSQLF01
we now get
GBSQP204-HPLJ8001 on GBSQLF01.sq.gb.remgen.com
We have an app. that requires the users to add there default printer and as this printer name is too long, it causes the app. to crash.
Is there any way of removing the .sq.gb.remgen.com?
I've gone into regedit and found the name of the printer e.g. GBSQP204-HPLJ8001 but dont know where or when the
on GBSQLF01.sq.gb.remgen.com is added
