I am switching users to another domain and right now the situation is after the switch over I still have to get them connected to their printers on their old print server. I can browse to the print server IP address but it asks for username and password and I have to enter their old domain name\administrator and password then I get the list of the print queue.

Is there something I can do on the print server that will make my job of adding the printer easier. I do have access to the print server from the old domain still.
