We are using windows 2008R2 active directory in our domain and the clients are  XP and  Windows 7. At the moment we have a old a printserver and a print management software installed onto this server , which is not great.

Now we are going to go with a different print management company. In this process  I am going to install a new  windows 2008 print server and a different print management software on this server.

We have Misrosoft EES in place so licencing is not a problem.

Firstly Please suggest me which version of windows do i need to install. Is it good to install
Window Server Standard 2008R2 with SP1 or Window Server Standard 2008R2 with SP2.

Secondly please suggest all the prerequisites  that i need to install on a window print server.
