Win2k3 Printer Management Puzzler

netserfx
Hey all,

I'm having some serious issues trying to add, manage and deploy two networked printers on our new Win2k3 server.

The printers are a Brother MFC-6800 and HP Deskjet 6122. They both are connected locally to a workstation, and shared with permissions set to EVERYONE=FULL.

I can find the printers on the server, and add them on the server, but I have problems when I try to add them to the print server.

Whenever I add the printers manually to the print server, the drivers show up but the printers do not.

If I circumvent the print server and simply try to deploy the printers via GPO and PushPrinterConnections.exe, nothing shows up on my workstations.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

Any help is much obliged,
