Unable to add printer from AD - Printer appears in AD but we get an error message upon adding it to client
Posted on 2008-06-12
We just purchased a Sharp AR-M207 printer/scanner and connected it to our network. I added the printer (via the print server role wizard) to our server (Server 2003). Everthing looked OK. Test page was fine.
I went to "Add Printer" on my client (all clients are XP) searched the active directory and installed on my client with no problems. Test page was fine.
I began going to other clients in our office and I cannot add the printer even though it shows up in the AD. I get an error, "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Either the printer name was typed incorrectly, or the specified printer has lost its connection...."
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.
