A printer is a peripheral which makes a persistent human readable representation of graphics or text on paper or similar physical media. Traditional printers are being used more for special purposes, like printing photographs or artwork, and are no longer a must-have peripheral; 3D printing has become an area of intense interest, allowing the creation of physical objects. An image scanner is a device that optically scans images, printed text, handwriting, or an object, and converts it to a digital image. Hand-held scanners, where the device is moved by hand, have evolved from text scanning "wands" to 3D scanners used for industrial design, reverse engineering, test and measurement, orthotics, gaming and other applications.

All workstations are Windows 10 Ver. 1903 and 1909

Hi,

We have two domains - A and B, let's say.   The print server is in domain A and the printer is in B. (in DNS)  

I can't resolve the CNAME of the printer from the print server in domain A.  

I thought that with Conditional Forwarding enabled and defined in Domain A, that it should be able to resolve the printer in domain B?  

We can only setup the printer by IP address, but prefer CNAME resolution between the two domains.

Thanks!

I need assistance deploying printers to computers via gpo or sccm. The printers are on a print server and shared out. We use to do a log in power shell script to do it. That program is no longer available so we need GPO or SCCM.

What’s the best way to do it? We want an adult to site down at a computer and get the printers in that area. We want students to log in and not get any printers.

The users travel between offices and need to print to their site printer at each location.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Installed networked printers on Windows 2016 server shared printers.  Then used Print Management to deployed shared printers to RDS 2016.  When a user logged to RDS, the same shared printer showed up more than 1.  It came back after deleted it.  How do I prevent this from happening?

I am unable to print to any printer after Windows update. I came into work today and noticed a W10 update kick in over the night. I noticed as soon as I went to print I received an error message. I then noticed I was unable to print to any printer. The error message was always the same "Unable to create print job". I rebooted, restarted the print spooler but nothing help. Any suggestions on how to to be able to print again?.

Hi, just recently I came across a feature in Epson POS printers that is really useful. What the feature does is allow you to replace a Windows system font with a POS printer device font. So, to be clear this when your program or application uses a font that you see on screen it the printer uses the native font it prints. For our shops, I buy used POS equipment. I would like to know which other systems (IBM Suremark, Star, etc.) have this feature. This way I can use this feature if I can use this feature with other POS System Pinters. Does anybody have experience with this? Thanks

This is featue setting

Dear Experts,

First of all, hope this message finds you well.

We are currently having an issue with one of our customers using a Dell Optiplex 5060, Windows 10 Pro / winver 1909 - no pending updates. Under Devices and Printers all the printers show status as "Not Connected". One of those printers is a MFP (Sharp MX-5141N) configured through a TCP/IP port.

Just an observation: this printer works perfectly fine in other workstations with the same operating system / winver and latest updates / same drivers package. Also, other printers in a File and Print server are able to be added.

We have tried uninstalling the drivers package and printer from Print Management and tried to reinstall the most recent available driver in sharp website with no success.

We have ran sfc /scannow, DISM and chkdsk /f /r, microsoft troubleshooter, with no success.

When we go to Device Manager, we see Print queues showing only "Root Print Queue". If we go to View - Show hidden devices - we are able to see the SHARP printer grayed out and showing error Code 45.

We know that the printer is not the issue, it is something corrupted in the system but we haven't been able to figure it out.

Something odd is that when we go to Devices and Printers in one of the workstations where the SHARP is working perfectly fine, we select PROPERTIES and under HARDWARE tab we are able to see the DEVICE FUNCTIONS for that device. If we do the same on the workstation with the problem, that same tab …

I have a simple question form which inserts the question into a mysql database (all on a local network).
I need the facility to print multiple copies of the question on 2 different printers instantly (or within 30 seconds of the question being entered..

Is there a way of automating this via PHP rather than relying on the client to do this?

Ideally the db will be updated once the printing has been sent.

Any ideas?

Hello,

I am using a windows 10 workstation that is in a domain. I have a label printer connected to this workstation with a serial connection. Recently I start having a problem with the jobs not printing. I can see the Job in the print queue I see the status light blinking then the job disappears from the queue.
So far, I tried:
•      Connect the printer to another system: works fine.
•      Uninstall and reinstall printer:  No luck
•      Tried another printer on this workstation: No Luck

I’m pretty sure the issue is connected to the workstation.

I check the event logs and this one stood out to me and I am wondering if it could be connected to the print issue because I am using a COM port. Any thoughts?

Source: DistributedCOM
Event ID: 10016

So here is the scenario, we have two domain controllers on windows 2019, one of the DC has printers on it and file shares.  I would like to have complete redundancy on the second domain controller with files for user shares and printers.  Is there a way to have that type of redundancy or is there a software or better way to do this?

Hello

WIndows 2016 VM with TSE/DRS role. About 30 remote users in 30 different TSE profiles
About 30 different printers installed in TCPIP direct printing

My spooler service is stoping (hanging) about 10 times a day. SOmetimes the spooler service starts again automatically. Sometimes it does not starts and no user can print until spooler services in started manually

I guess it is one of my printers drivers which is making this problem. But I do not find the problematic driver
I there a way or a tool to identify the cause of the problem? to identify which driver if stoping the spooler service?

Any idea how to resolve this problem?

Thank you very much

We are having an issue where Windows 10 machines are automatically adding printers from a print server. I am not sure why this is happening or how to prevent this. I have tried going into "Advanced sharing settings" -> Private -> Network Discovery -> and unchecking "Turn on automatic setup of network connected devices"

Any ideas I can try?

Thanks in advance

Is it possible to write a message on the Print Dialog (see hardcopy),
or can I block or erase (only for this printing) the Brother HL-7050 from the choosing list of the Print Dialog?
Need some help with Print Dialog

I am struggling with an HP M15W printer on Windows Server 2008r2 sp1 (with terminal services installed). The HP Universal print driver is installed (TCP/IP port) and print jobs move through the spooler. Files appear in C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS and disappear within about a second.

A packet capture shows data transmitted to the networked printer on port 9100. The printer changes from sleep mode status to ready status but nothing prints.

The same driver installed on a W10 system works without issue.

I have tried several other HP drivers (PS & PCL) with no change in the behavior.

I have found this HP article which sounds like it would be helpful yet the solution does not apply to my Server which is running Terminal Services https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05811675 The article states:

HP printers released after Spring 2015 are based on XPS technology. There is a feature called Easy Print which can result in this issue when using a RDP client or Terminal Service client from Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

HP links to a page from Microsoft with instructions for configuring terminal services within a workgroup which is not applicable to a domain joined server. Additionally the instructions are for server 2012 not server 2008R2.

Can anyone suggest any troubleshooting for this issue?

Additional information: We are using these printers on a mobile cart so we need a low power …

Original subnet is 10.010.0/24 and we are out of IP addresses, 10.0.9.0/24 and 10.0.11.0/24 are already allocated. Superscope added using 10.1.10.0/24 and secondary address added to port on router to allow communications.

Now original subnet 10.0.10.x gets identified as unknown network and new subnet shows our domain name

Printers on original subnet stopped working until after PC reboots even for PC’s on same subnet.

DHCP service is on our File/Print server (Windows Server 2012).  Both scopes added to a superscope “folder”.

Unknown reasons why original subnet is showing unknown network or why printers not working.

Are there additional settings that should be configured?  Can we resubnet using 10.0.9.x or 10.0.11.x with different subnet mask and keep the 10.0.9.0/24 and 10.0.11.0/24 operational?

Hi all, I want to share a printer (Epson ET-3600) throughout my home wirelessly and I am unsure and confused as how to do this. I have a Comcast cable modem/wireless router in my basement which gives WiFi that works fine for my basement and first floor, but not my second floor. I then bought and installed a D-Link DIR-810L wireless router and installed that on my first floor. The D-Link does provide good wireless coverage on the second floor but I had to create a new second WiFi network using this device. Now I have 2 WiFi networks in my house. Let’s call them Main and Second. I was told I should get a device to replace the D-Link WiFi router that would be able to boost my WiFi on the second floor but keep the same SSID that my Comcast modem/router provides, the one named Main. Once I do that, then I can share my printer on the Main network all throughout the house. Can somebody please tell me what extender device to use and how to accomplish this?  Thank you very much. Marc

When logging into our RDS 2008 server it sits at "applying group policy printers" for about 10 minutes and finally loads. We have a group policy to assign a HP color laserjet M477fdw" the default printer. printer.png
Any ideas what to look for that would cause this?

Hello,
We have a new scanner with CapturePerfect software for the scanner. Version 3.1.5117.623.
Previously, when Scan Batch to File was selected, the last saved file name would be remembered.
Right now, each time a new job is selected $New Document$ comes up as the file name to be overwritten.

Does anyone know where is the setting to change that?

I want to use HP ink refill option where it connects directly with my printer over the internet, etc.

Problem is, HP thinks I have a different printer, (I had to trash that one, it quit printing color, could not solve), so they have (I guess) my email address connected to that old printer.

I can get to "Enter Printer Claim Code", it implies a page will print, it does not, so I'm stuck.

See attached.

Any ideas?

Hi,
