making non dc server see all logins as domain\user rather than pc\user
I have had to set up a hyperv 2003r2 on a server as hp dont provide server 08 (or even vista) drivers for one of my printers. On domained pcs this works fine the printer gets deployed but on the staff laptops which are domained but use local logons when they try to go to \\print-svr manually (or presumably when the deploy gpo applies which acording to rsop it is) its asking for a password and im having to put in domain\user is there anyway i can force this serer to think any login attempt is domain\ unless told otherwise other than making it a dc (i dont really want a hyperv dc on my only other dc that sounds like a recipe for trouble)

have you tried this printer on windows 7? windows may have driver included, or windows update may pick it up... Have a go if you havent!

Assumiing you dont audit/charge prints;
Write a simple map drive script with a generic unpriveleged user which the user can run which maps to a "dummy" share. This will authenticate the users to the server, then map the printer as you usually do
net use z: \\printersvr\share /user:unpriveleged@domain password
If you do audit/charge you can write a vb script to do the above but prompt for the username and password

or if you do as j17sparky has said and do the batch file but i would remove Z: so it authenticates the connection but keeps it hidden for the user
