List printers in DNS

Printers and ScannersDNSTCP/IP
6 Comments1 Solution442 ViewsLast Modified:
We have a windows domain with two 2008 DCs. There are 80 printers with static IPs which are accessed via a print server. Would like to have the printers list themselves in DNS as our ServiceDesk software asset component looks to DNS to retrieve the device names when performing an IP range scan to locate devices. Is there a way I can force this to happen? Alternatively, is there an easy way to "export" them from the print server into AD so that I can use a domain scan to identify the devices (in this case the asset software will pull the name from AD). I would prefer not to have to create each of the 80 printers individually in AD. Any help would be appreciated.
