Can't connect to Printer(s)
Title might be a bit misleading but I'll try and explain this as best as I can! I'm still new to getting involved with networks (College course had a 2-month unit on networks, which involved our lecturer talking about wavelengths and planets. Good times.) so I may be a bit rubbish at making sense of this!
We've just setup our new laptop trolley with Windows 7, however we're still on an XP/2003 network. Due to the printer being a fairly old one now (HP CP2025) we couldn't seem to get the Windows 7 drivers to load on our server. We took one of the PC's from our Suite and set that up with Windows 7 on the domain as a print server for the laptops. They installed fine when we setup the image on each laptop and finished setting them up. However, our Students can't connect to the printers. They can connect to the PC (Run -> \\PCNAME) just fine but when we attempt to add them we get a "0x000005" error - when I try running a PrintUI script, it asks for credentials - I type them in correctly, and I get a "0x0000052e" error. It's one printer, but two 'devices' - MonoLaserJet & ColourLaserJet. We're a small Primary School, hence the need for only one printer!
I've tried looking up this error and the ones that have been given solutions haven't worked for us yet. I'm asking here since my NM is a contractor for various schools, so he's only here Monday & Thursday mornings. We've not got long until we break for Summer Holidays and upgrade to Server 2008 R2 anyway, but it'd be nice to still get this fixed since the laptops are used very frequently. My NM doesn't believe it's a permissions issue since he's looked at all the places he reckons it'd be at. I've had a look as well but as said I'm on the learning ladder for working with networks so I may have missed a lot of places to look at!
I'm sorry for this being such a big post, as said I'm still getting to grips with getting experience with networks - this is my first ever full-time job, came straight out of college into it so I'm still learning :) if I've missed out any information you need to help with suggestions, let me know and I can try and get it for you!
