    Re: Deploying printers via group policy

    You only need to update the schema on your domain controller. You can install Server 2003 R2 without a reboot and then add Print Management from within Add/Remove Programs.

    The only thing I noticed is that "R2" isn't displayed when viewing Help > About Windows from My Computer, but once you perform a reboot R2 is displayed.

    In my experience, you must always update the domain controller first and then any member servers (as required). Doing it the other way round just creates errors. It depends how your network is setup. Your DC may also be a print server (for example), but you may have delegated this task to another server if you have a lot of network printers to manage, hence you'd need to update two servers to R2.
