I have been asked to replicate a client's AD/server/printer environment. They have sent me some fairly limited information and I am unable to get any more easily. They have sent a screenshot showing that they have identical pairs of printer names listed (in AD) on their main print server. They also mentioned something about CNAMES.
I am struggling to replicate this environment, even playing with CNAMES. I can't figure out how you would get two printer names (i.e. queues) with the same name on the same server, everything I do (except low-level editing of AD with ADSIEdit) windows prevents duplicate printer names. (I'm using Server 2003) Can anyone tell me, first, why would someone do such a thing!! (Particularly because they sometimes have different models listed under the same printer name) and secondly how I replicate the environment?
many thanks Mark p.s. be gentle I'm a printer man, not an AD man!
