I bought a new HP Laser Jet M401dne printer to replace our old network printer. For some strange reason after I put it on the network and then shared it from my print servers, it won't let me add it to peoples Pc's correctly from the network.
For example with my other printers you could just UNC to the print server, double click the printer you wanted, bam you had it. Or you could go through Windows 7 add printer wizard and select the printer you wanted from ADUC.
If I try either of those ways now, it will contact the printer and eventually tell me either access is denied or it won't install correctly. In both instances after adding the new printer to a Pc, it will show up, but it will have the yellow troubleshooting mark on it and won't be available.
The only way I found around this is to add the printer via connecting to the tcp/ip port and then sticking the driver cd in, selecting "have disk" and then the printer installs perfectly fine.
I am not sure why I can't get this to work via the network? I have checked all of the permissions but can't see whats missing compared to the others. I installed an HP color printer a few months ago and had it up and working in minutes.
Would greatly appreciate some help on this! thx...
