Go here:


There are no Server 2008 drivers available but try it with 2003 and see what limitations there are, if any.

The first link doesn't have 2008 server.  

@integrityoffice, when I unzip the files from the link you gave it really doesn't give me a Universal driver, but lots of other choices.  Do you know which other HP model I could select to run this printer?
Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I'm saying try the 2003 drivers.  In my experience it has worked in the past.

For 2008 I would prefer to use Vista drivers as 2008 is Vista based and 2003 is XP. Get them from:

There is a download button on the link above for x64

I know a client of mine has used this on quite a few x64 W2008 servers now.

Here is the 32 bit one.

Personnaly I really do not like those printers and I really dislike the driver installer for them on my servers hence my usage of the above universal driver. I have a client with a few 1022n (urgh)
