    Re: Printer not showing in AD

    Could you please tell us:
    The make / model of printer
    How it is connected (direct connection, network etc) and to what
    The network environment (presumably windows 2000 or above)

    With the information you have given, the question is a little difficult to answer!

    Thanks
    Tom

            Hi,
            Give some time to AD to update. If you have defined your printer few minutes ago wait for replication to take place
            cheers

              Solved.

              The Client pc didn't have the same DNS Address as the Server.

              It is working now!!

              Thanks for Help

                  And this is why I love DHCP. Also like to thank Andy for posting back the solution. We do appreciate that and it may help someone else in the future.

                    Re: Printer not showing in AD

                    I hope this is not a symptom of a larger problem. To paraphrase another industry, there are only ever 3 problems with AD: DNS, DNS and DNS.
                    If youare not pointing at the SBS with DNS, how did you manage to log in. EVERYTHING in an SBS network should be pointing to the Server for DNS (Internal NIC if there are 2 NICs in the Server - and that includes the SBS External NIC!)
                    SBS sets up DHCP with the correct parameters at installation. That is why it is worthwhile to use it - turn off the DHCP on the modem/router.
                    It also correctly updates DHCP if you use the Change server IP Address Wizard, not to mention that the CEICW relies on it.
                    In short, back to my mantra - UTFW.
                    TIA
