We have a W2k8 R2 server 64 bit, that we added Print Management. The initial machine name was used as the initial print server, but I want to add others. When I add another print server, they all come up with a Red Arrow(downward).
So I can't work on the added devices, adding printers, properties etc..., why?

When this is fixed can I also add, 32 and 64 bit devices to this server and it being 64 bit?

What is also the benefit to a print server vs just loading drivers and point them to the IP of a printer and print directly to the device?
