i have 50 laptops that used to be on a netware solution.
they printed to the printer name instead of the ip.
we have switched to a 2003 domain and they cant seem to find the printer name now.
where should i set the printer name up so they all can print to it without having to change the port to the ip on each laptop.
thanks in advance.

You would want to create an A record for the printer in your DNS server to get this done. That's probably how it was set up with Netware. Without a DNS record, there is no way for systems to translate the name to an IP address.

If you are running a 2003 AD domain, you should have DNS set up. Open up the DNS management tool (under Control Panel, Administrative Tools) and add a new host (A) record with the name of the printer and the corresponding IP address.

FYI - It may take a few minutes for the name to be recognized by the workstations.
