unable to install printer via network share
Posted on 2010-11-12
we are currently running Windows server 2003 and have had this issue for a while.
I install a printer on to the server, I share it on the network and in active directory with the correct drivers installed for the client machines, when I attempt to install any printers that are shared on the server in active directory the client machine reports it is unable to find drivers for the printer, I am them required to manually find the drivers once found the printer installs correctly.
I obviously don't want users to continually search for drivers when installing printers via active directory so my question is how can I tell the client PC where the drivers are by the share on the server.
