Printing to Windows print server from Macs
We currently have about 20 Macs that are integrated into our AD domain with Golden Triangles and magic. They used to be able to print to our W2K8 print server no problems, but recently they have started asking for domain credentials in order to print. All I have done so far is re-bind the server to the domain as that was not authenticating properly. Now that is working fine, I don't know what to try next. Any help is appreciated.

Perhaps I should clear up that when I said re-bind the server, I actually meant the OS X server. If that helps any?

maybe try re-kerberising the services?

OK, in the end we installed the Apple services, whatever they are called now, Bonjour? although this completely bypasses our print managing software.

I tend to install the KPrintD software on our mac clients (and servers). This allows the os x clients to use kerberos authentication to a mac server that holds queues connected to the Windows print queues. I have heard that this is no longer needed however, I have yet to see that this is true. The file is at http://www.deploystudio.com.
Get it while you can if you wish to use it as they have deprecated it now. I haven't had a single authentication issue.
My set up is...
Window 2003 Print Server with Papercut installed and monitoring the Print Queues. A 10.5.8 PowerPC mac server with the 2003 print queues added. The only reason I do this is to allow me to manage the print queues in WGM.
WGM on this server pushes out the print queues to the clients.
