Printer Server Shares
Posted on 2009-12-16
We have six (Windows 2003) print servers. Two of them are now experiencing a problem when you attempt to add a printer on your XP workstation which is hosted on either of those two print servers. If you have administrative rights on those two print servers and access from your XP workstation with a regular user account, it prompts you for credentials. If you enter in your administrative account and Password, it adds the printer to your XP workstation. If you try your regular usera account (smart card acces) it failes with "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Operations could not be completed (error 0x0000052F). Access this computer form the network is set to everyone. Permissions on the printers are set the same as the functioning servers. Also, I created a folder on the desktop of the non-functional print server, shared it out to FC for everyone with everyone having FC Security and again, you can only access it with an account which has admin rights on that server.
