Printers not appearing in Directory and vanishing from clients
Right, I've installed the printers on the server. Shared them, added them to the list directory but yet when i do a search from my machine i get the "no printers available" message. When i press "The printer i want isnt listed" and click "Find a printer in directory" there they all are.
I've never managed printers with AD but have tried changing some settings to:
Allow printers to be published: Enabled
Allow pruning of published printers: Disabled
Check published state: Enabled, every 1 hour
Directory pruning interval: Disabled
Directory pruning priority: Disabled
Directory pruning retry: Disabled
Log directory pruning retry events: Disabled
Printer browsing: Enabled
Prune printers that are not automatically republished: Disabled
Allow print spooler to accept client connections: Enabled
I've bounced the print spool but doesnt seem to have helped. I seem to have gone from having a few printers listed but now there are none....
