    New 2008 R2 Print Server

    Hi,

    Just in the middle of migrating over to Windows 2008 R2 servers.

    I am creating clean installs for the new servers and I'm in the process of creating a new print server.

    I will need to configure it so that it will work with Windows XP (x86) and Windows 7 (x86 & x64).

    For the following printers:

    HP LJ1200
    HP LJ1300
    HP LJ1320
    HP LJ2015
    HP LJ2055
    HP LJ4015

    I was going to use HP Universal Printer Driver PCL6, but I am unclear what (if any) drivers should be used for the following printers:

    HP OfficeJet 6000
    HP OfficeJet Pro K5400
    HP OfficeJet Pro K8600
    Business InkJet 1200dtn
    Business Inkjet 1100dtn


    Any feedback/gotchas would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    If you search HP's website, you should be able to download the correct driver they recommend.

    On 2008 R2, you must add the x64 driver first, then the x86 driver second through Print Management > Print Servers > SERVERNAME > Drivers

    The x64 and x86 drivers must be the same language - PCL5 or PCL6 and the same version number.

    I had to use the 2003/XP drivers to allow XP clients print through a 2008r2 server for this printer.

    slightly off topic, but can 2008r2 do any quota management etc of printing without 3rd party tools?

    I can confirm no quota management on printing is possible without some third party tool/software.

    Most newer photocopiers do have built in print management, but if you're using printers then a software solution would be required.

    Hi,
    Take a look at this they offer a free version but the paid for version is much cheaper than some of the others that are around.

    Fitosoft – Print Management Software

    The free version would be perfect for primaries.
