Copy a printer in Windows Server 2008

Hi,

I have a printserver, Windows Server 2008 R2 standard. I need a copy of one of the installed printers. This copy must be installed on the same server, just with another name and different settings.

If i install the same printer on ip address, i can't choose the same driver. Only choose from a default list, or click 'have disk'.

Can someone help me with this?

If you give the printer a different name, you should be able to use the same driver. That always works for me.

If you have the printer install program, just install it again.

Thanks for the reply.

I click 'add printer'. Then i choose the printer i want to copy. After that it shows the message below. I can change the name, but no printer queue is added.

I have not heard of that Printer / Driver. Perhaps it does not install correctly as a driver. What I described works for HP and Xerox drivers.

Can you run the printer install again?  That is from the install file or CD?
