I have a windows server 2008 DC that has file shares and printer shares. I have just removed AD from this server and it is now a member server. The file shares were unaffected but the print shares are inaccessible from the client PCs. When you open a shared printer from a PC, the printer Queue pops up with a status of "opening" but eventually fails.
I can browse to the server and see all of the printer shares listed but can't open them.
I didn't expext demoting a server would affect the printer shares. How can I get them back online without recreating the shares all over again?
