Adding Dell (unknown) printers to a windows 2003 RC2 Server
Am hopping some one can help me here.
I am setting up a 2003 print server and have to add about 200 printers to it. about 60% are HP printers and the rest are Dells. several different models of each but the Dells are generaly 3110cn's 5100n etc..
When i add a new printer i do the standered add printer >> loclay printer >> creat a new port ...
now at this point if it is a HP prineter i am adding i can chose hpjetdirect port, or standered tcp/ip port and after that it will detect the printer and ask me for the drivers.
however with the dell printers i chose standered TCP/ip port and click next. it then comes up saying there is an unknown device and i have to chose generic network card. Before i can install the drivers.
Sorry i hope you can follow all this.
Also Dell printers are not detected if you run 2003 rc2's automatic install of Printers?
So my questin is, is it possible to install a standered dell printer port on the server so that it automatical can detect it when i am trying to add Printers to the server. And is there any way for me to get 2003 RC2 to detect these printers when it runs a printer discovery?
