Any problems using server 2008 r2 print management when most of the clients
Posted on 2010-11-08
are windows xp sp3. I'm creating a new file/print server for a bldg and I want to use server 2008 r2. I installed the file services and print management roles on this server. However, my printers for this bldg are currently installed on a windows server 2003 server and the cleints are almost all windows xp sp3 with a few windows 7. Am I making my life easier or will this cause me problems. Do you guys recommend this move? I'm currently deploying my printers using group policy preferences and I would like that to continue. Will that be a problem or should this pretty much be a smooth transition?
Also, should i use the universal printer drivers for the printers for when we eventually go to windows 7 on all these clients. I know that's a lot but I always appreciate the input and recommendations of the experts on this site. Thanks..
