I set up a dedicated Print Server on one of my VM's.  For the most part is worked good, but not so good with Dell and Lexmark printers.  
So I'm wondering are there any products out there for better printer management?  It's a Windows 2003 R2 server.

We are licensed for Simplify Printing.  I thought it was only for Citrix Servers?
