How to change stored Network Printer Credentials

Ok, i have several printers that are all controlled by a print server in a domain.  When i initially set up each workstation to use their respective printers, it seems on two or three workstations, when i installed the printer and it asked for credentials, i used DOMAIN\administrator instead of that users domain log in, and clicked remember.  How do i change that now??

Please help. Thanks in advance!

Probably easiest to delete the printer on the workstation and recreate it.

I tried that.  It is remembering the credentials.  Even tried deleting, restarting and then readding, but it rememebers the last credentials.

Try running on the problematic PC (XP), from the start/run box:
rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr
This should open the password management console. If your saved share is present, you should be able to delete it.

Whats interesting is, even though i went in there and deleted the credentials for that server completely, and then deleted he printer, when i reinstalled, it still used the same credentials. it never asked me for new ones.  I may wind up deleteing all credential in that list

The odd part is why did it ask for credentials in the first place. In a domain you generally grant domain users permissions for a printer then any user connecting to the printer is automatically granted access.

Well, that's because our servers are in a domain but our workstations are logging in locally.  It's a long story, but we had to do it that way for the time being.  So we have to store credentials for access to anything on the domain.  Interesting note: I had two computers with the wrong into saved.  I tried one just like you said, deleted the credential, delted the printer and when i added it again, it asked for knew credentials.  Worked like a charm.  The other one however, i deleted all the credentials stored, deleted the printer and it still somehow didn't ask for credentials.  I wonder if for some reason i have to restart that one first.  Don't know why though, the other one worked fine.  Identical PC's.

>>"our workstations are logging in locally"
I can't imagine why, but I will believe you :-)

You can actually run into issues if you try to connect to the same server with two different credentials such as the user's for file shares and admin for printers.
