[OT] Windows 2003 Server AD & Win-98 printing

Todd,



I have found an excellent list for Active Directory here:
http://www.activedir.org <http://www.activedir.org/> . I have been on
their list for over 3 years now and the advice is the best anywhere when
it comes to Active Directory Win2k/2k3 issues.



In your situation, I might be tempted to try to let the DC hook up to
the printer, and share it from the DC (sharing a shared printer in
essence) just to get you by the heat of the month-end.

On the off chance someone in this gorup has run into this I will post a
desparate question.

Yesterday we switched to a new dedicated domain controller server
running Windows-2003 Server and handling Activie Directory.

Now on our plant floor where all the PCs are Win-98 (until we replace
them for Vantage 8.0) we can't print to a laser printer shared by a
Win-98 PC. This is in our shipping dept. and it is month-end week so
they are getting pretty hot at me down there.

I have already installed the DSclient.exe (AD client for win-98) on
these PCs and that seemd to work last night but this morning they are
back to being prompted for a password everytime they try to access the
shared printer from the other PCs.

Has anyone here ever run into this or seen a solution (other than
upgrading the PCs to Win2K)?

Thanks,
Todd Caughey

A few things to try,



#1 Make sure the computer account is created in AD under computers.



#2 Make sure all Windows 98 computers are in the same workgroup name as
your NETBIOS domain name.



#3 Make sure you enable NETBIOS over TCP/IP on the DC's NIC (and turn
off the firewall).



#4 I assume all Windows 98 computers login to the domain.



#5 I also assume the domain is not in "NATIVE" mode

You could try adding local accounts for the users on the computer
that is sharing the printer. That should make it not ask for a password.
