Hey

I'm unable to connect to a Windows 2012 R2 Print server from another Windows 2012 R2 server using Print Manager.

The Print Manager connects - but does not show any drivers or printers.

Both servers are member of the same domain - and I'm usning a domain admins account.

Any ideas?

Mike

The winrm port may need to be opened.
There is a command to do this. I would check this out first.

If the server was just built.  At least one printer must be shared on the new server before it will show up in Print Management on the other one.

It seems to have been a DNS error.
