We have Windows 2008 print server, we have network printers.
we manually map network printers for users to the print queue on windows servers.
Recently a Network print device10 has been moved to a different location (Area15) , and print device15 has been moved to area10 users in area15 were asked to reboot their computers to flush DNS, however when they printed, their print jobs ended up in area10, it has followed the old print device hostname.
I wonder if Windows print server can be part of the issue ?
I typed the command: Ipconfig /displaydns on print server, I saw correct hostname to ip mapping, I am not sure when and why does the print server do the mapping?
Any clarification will be very much appreciated.
