I have a Windows 2008 R2 domain server where I have a dozen of printers configured. The clients are XP sp3 computers.
Say, I have a printer in the server named "2FL-HP3600N-IP157" and the shared name is "2_WEST_HP_COLOR"
When I go through the Add Printer wizard, I reach the "find now" part where it lists the printers in the directory. Here are my issues:
1- The network printer directory does not show the "friendly" share names I created
2- When the printer is added, it also uses the non-friendly name (2FL-HP3600N-IP157)
How can I fix the above?
