I'm having some inconsistency issues with the Print Management MMC snap-in that you can use to manage printers in a Server 2003 R2 environment.
When I run the utility from a workstation on my network with all the proper print servers added to the list, I see a certain number of printers. However, when I run it from a server, under the same Domain Admin credentials, I see way more printers - and yes, the server list is the same inside the utility.
Why can I see some printers when running it from a server but not when I run it from a workstation? Any ideas?
One piece of interesting data - when running the utility from a workstation, some of my print servers show NO printers at all. I can't peg any consistency in OS level to this issue either. One of my Server 2003 R2 SP2 boxes shows all its printers fine, another one shows none. Again, this only happens when running from a workstation. All of my printers always show up when running from a server.
