How to publish nework-attached printer i

By RiskyOZ ·
Hi All,
Does anyone know how to publish network-attached printer in Active Directory without setting up print server?
I have HP 4000TN with ethernet card.
I don't want to use any servers as print server.
I can install driver on any client, create TCP/IP port and print.
But is there any way to publish it in Active Directory? Through scripting or whatever.
Thanks in advance if somebody knows the answer

If you are just doing straight IP printing, with no Windows machine as a print server to manage the print queue and print permissions, then no.
You can only publish Windows resources (BackOffice products, printers that are really print queues, etc)in AD.
The only way I could think of doing this would be if the software for your HP printer comes with some kind of AD integration.
But if you did set up a printer as a print server, then you could published the shared-out printer from that Windows machine in AD.

if you don't have the msi installer or zap installer you can get the veritas EL, or the installwise software so you can do the repackage and create the GPO for the users you want to publish the printer
