I'm looking for printer audit / usage monitor tha's bundled
with MS Win 2003 & not  3rd party tools.

Is it possible to track which domain userid / logon id
prints to a specific color laserjet, the volume of printing
and the files / content the user is printing?

This is to :

a) account how much is being printed so that it can be charged to the
    specific department / user

b) prevent abuse of printing resource for personal use

Using mainly HP color laserjets that are network mapped thru a
Win 2003 print server.

How to configure this

which file in the print server shows/holds these printing information?
