I'm having a massive problem with my network printers - one in particular.
A little background:
Originally, all of our printers were added on our domain controller, and shared. There were around 20 printers. This caused big problems with our domain controller, running out of resources etc. The printers were migrated to a virtual server (using printmig.exe) and this solved the problems.
A couple of days ago, this server blew up, and for reasons unknown, a backup wasn't available.
I've allocated a machine (Windows XP Pro) called it printserver, and added all the printers to it (I found the .cab file of all the printers from the previous migration)
I installed all the required printer drivers, shared the printers etc... and added them to users machines. All is well, except for one printer.
This printer, is a Zebra 2844-z http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/products/printers/desktop/lp2844z.html
It's connected to a HP JetDirect 175x http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF05a/18972-18972-236253-34214-64302-28830.html
The ip address is 10.0.9.21
I have installed drivers for both on the xp print server.
However, it simply doesn't work - I can't print to it, print a test page, or anything.
I've done the usual "off and on again" on every bit of related equipment. I thought it may be the printer that may have coincidentally died on the same day as the server failure, so I plugged it directly into my laptop via usb, and printed fine.
I'm all out of ideas with how to fix this, please, anybody that can share any ideas, I'm very grateful
