Share a Printer on Windows Server 2008
Posted on 2011-10-04
I have a client running windows SBS 2008. They bought a new Hp LaserJet Pro M1536dnf MFP and I have been there to install and set up the printer on the server and then share it with the two users. It works well from the server. I share the printer, add it to the directory and cannot get any workstations to load the driver and install the printer.
When I add new printer from the control panel on the workstation and browse I see the printer. When I try and install on the workstations I get an error. First is says that it cannot find the print driver, I press browse and then it is looking for a 'inf' file. One workstation is a Windows 7 and one is Windows XP. Neither one will install the printer.
On the server management console under Network>Devices the printer is listed. If I go to the directory it is listed there too.
Not sure what to do. If anyone has a suggestion it will be much appreciated.
