Printers Not Reachable via Directory
Posted on 2011-03-17
Windows Server 2008 R2. Clients are XP SP3 (32bit).
If I add printers to the Server, and share them to Everyone, and check off "List in the Directory", when I go to a client PC to add them and search the Directory, they are not there. I can add them by specifiying the URL though.
Some of my clients are getting "Spooler" errors (i.e. the spooler service is not running, and if they go into Control Panels, there are no printers listed). I am wondering if this is related.
But why do printers not show up in the directory?
