Printers

Hi,
I have a new windows 2008 server as a print server.
From a local PC when I add a printer it requires that I add a domain admin account to add it but when pointing to a printer on another server the printer installs with the normal user account.
Not sure what configuration parameter needs to be checked.
Regards,
Patric Paal

The issue might be that the drivers available on the share on win2k8 is different than the drivers in use on other servers.  Installing drivers requires an elevated set of rights.

\\servername\print$

A member server is always trusted.

Use group policy objects or preferences to push printers to users.

Create an OU, move a test client and a test user inside the created OU, create and modify accordingly a GPO (inside the OU). See what happens. Let me know.
