Printers are not published in AD after using printmig utlity

I have migrated several printers using printmig from windows 2000 to windows 2003.  The printers and shares are working fine.  I can print to the shares just fine, I have enabled list in directory, GPO is configured to allow print publishing, and still not showing up in the directory.  This is a Windows 2003 SP1 server, not a DC, no DNS.  I have unshared and reshared them, pointed to another DNS / DC server, and event codes list they are published but they don't show up.  Under AD U&C, I can see the server, but no printers are shown.  Ideas?  Replication and DNS seem to be fine, I have done this on two other servers just fine.

Thanks
Chris

In ADUC did you set the option at the top in View, as show computers, users, groups as Containers?

If you click that and then drill down to the print server you should see the printers listed below the server.  You can then Move them to any OU you wish for AD locating/querying.

If you try to install the printer on a workstation using find in the directory and just clicking Find Now...do they show up?

What about doing a Find in ADUC for all printers?

Maybe they are being placed somewhere that you aren't looking at?

I can search both ADUC or Desktop, and entire domain and they aren't there.

I figured it out... Evidently I downloaded Printmig 3.0 instead of 3.1 like I used on my other servers.  That .1 gives AD data from the old printers.  Wierd thing, even  though I unshared and reshared and listed in the directory it still would not work.  go figure...
