Cannot add shared printer to Active Directory - check box not available.

I have a Windows XP Pro workstation that is part of a domain with Windows 2003 Small Business Server.  I can map to the server and seeing shared files on the server is no problem.

I have 3 printers attached to this workstation but cannot add these 3 shared printers to the active directory because the check box for "list in directory" is missing.  It is not showing up in the share dialog box (not even in ghosted form).

Make sure file and printer sharing is installed under the network properties of your network interface. Also make sure your DNS settings for this network interface are pointing to your SBS 2003 server. If this does not work you may want to remove this computer from the domain and try joining again.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Yes, for some reason the DNS settings were changed to automatic and was not pointing to the SBS 2003 server.  Once I made the change, the 'List to Directory' option shows up in the share printers window. Thank you.
