Network Printers Not Showing in Directory

Our organization has several print servers, for some reason the printers on one of the servers are no longer listed in the directory.  We haven't made any AD changes recently.

Are there any known causes for this?

Check the event log on the print server, any events stand out?

Check DNS on the print server, make sure it is pointing to the correct DC
Hi winstarman,

if you do a query in AD, are the printers simply not there at all

Nothing stood out in the event log, and the DNS settings were correct.  I decided to just to a reboot of the print server and that resolved the issue, they are now available in the directory.
