I have a similar situation to this:

http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/entire-directory-option-not-showing-adding-network-printer-t3550454.html

entire-directory-option is just completely missing?

I have DNS and DHCP working fine.  I can ping everything.

Thanks for all the help!

What if your client PC left the domain and rejoined, re-establishing it's security trust?

Can you see other network resources without problems?

Hello,

is SNMP services installed on your print server?

If not, server doesn't show printers.

Its a mixture of XP and Windows 7.  There are about 10 machines I believe I've gotten 2 to work on XP and 2 to work on Windows 7, and did nothing with the others yet.

I would recommand you to check rsop.msc on 1 XP that is working, and find the setting that is not the same.
i would start with Computer config\Administratitve Templates\Network\network connections\windows firewall\Domain Profile

Let me know if this helped
