Q: We are running AD. Whenever we want to move a shared printer from one
server to another server, we need to go to each client to change the settings.
For example, we may want to change the settings from
\\serverB\printer. I wonder if there is
any way to do \\domain\printer instead of
\\server\printer just like DFS?
A: You can stick DNS names in the UNC path -- e.g.
and then use DNS to manage the printer locations. I suppose you could do the
same with NetBIOS names (WINS etc.)
print a DOS application through the network printer
A: To enable your
DOS apps to print to a network printer, at a command prompt (or in a batch
file), type: NET USE LPTx: \\computername\sharename /PERSISTENT:YES.
Alternatively, create a local printer and redirect the port to the
network server. To do that, create a local printer and in the Ports section,
create a new port. Click Local, and type the server and
printer name for the printer (use the \\servername\printername syntax).

How to fix a
print problem without rebooting the server
Q: For some reason the printer spool gets clogged up and I have to reboot
the server to be able to print. Even if I try and delete the files they will
go clear until I reboot. Any Ideas?

print, try to delete the job first. If, for some reasons, you can't delete
it, you can go to Administrative Tools>services to stop and restart the
printer spool without rebooting the server.
