I'm working on a new print server running Windows Server 2008 R2. The shared printers will be listed in Active Directory. The print server has a host record with one name, but I want to users to connect using a different name, setup via a cname record on the dns server.
The problem is that these shared printers are listed in Active Directory using the host A record. I can choose to add the printer via the
\\cname\printername share, but if I find the printer in Active Directory it will connect to the printer on the user's computer via
\\hostname\printername instead, and this difference is highly visible to end users. I would like the printers to be listed using the cname record, such that when users connect to a printer all they see is the cname.
Is this possible?
