I'm trying to install printers on a Print Server I set up on a 2003 SP2 VM.  It states I don't have the proper permissions.  I looked in Control Panel and there is no "user" options.  How do I check and change the VM permissions?

VMware has no control over the permissions,which prevent you from installing as printer on the server.

Are you logged into the Server with Local Administrator or Domain Administrator permissions to install this printer?

It's Hyper-V.  Logged in as Administrator (domain)

So you are logged into the Server 2003 VM as Domain Administrator, and cannot install printers?

Partially correct.
For some installations I get the message I need Administrator permissions.

Is the Administrator account on the domain, a member of the local administrators group on the Server 2003 VM.

Check Settings, Control Panel, Computer Manager, User and Groups, Administrator Group, what accounts are present?

this server is a member of the domain (if it is), the account domain/Domain Admins should be in the Local Administrators group. Is the account you are using a Domain Admin?

In the Administrators group it is Administrator an laspca\domain admins.

Yes it is a domain Admin.  I log in as Administrator

It's an HP4200.  I'm installing it directly from the HP CD.

try downloading the latest driver from the HP Website, and just install the PCL6 driver not the additional tools.

you solved my printer problem.  Thanks.  However, how do I award points, because that wasn't really the question?
