comment Problem with MS DTC on SQL2008 win server 2k8 with linked server from sql2000 win server 2k
Try executing a query in management studio or sqlcmd using the linked server connection (and the same credentials as the application uses). If you can execute the query successfully, it's probably not the linked server connection. If there is something wrong with the linked server configuration, this should give you a more detailed error message.

comment Active Directory Web Programming
The sample I posted above was pulled and modified from another sample I put together as a windows app (hence the MessageBox statement). All it does is get a user's properties based on their username, convert the GUID to a string, then use that string to get the same user from AD. The MessageBox simply illustrates that it does indeed get the same object.

objectGUID and objectSID are not the same thing, so don't use them for comparison or linking. The objectGUID can be converted to a string and this string can be used to query AD. See the crude sample I posted in my edit.

comment How to install SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008 on a single machine
If you are going to have each version of SQL server installed, why would you want to go backwards? Personally, I always install the oldest version first and work forward from there. Although it should not matter, I believe newer versions of software are more likely to be aware of the older versions and not screw them up. Whereas, older versions would have no idea regarding the file structure and whatnot of newer versions. But that is just my opinion and, as you said, paranoia.

comment Print spooler issue
I compared to reg entries for the two printers. There are a few differences: Server 1 (Working): DMC Files - "HPlb6esk.cfg HPehujlu.cfg HPqj86a1.cfg" Previous Names - "HP LaserJet 4250 PCL5e" Server 2 (Not Working): DMC Files - "HPvcln4b.cfg" Previous Names - "HP LaserJet 4x50 PCL5e" The following keys were present on Server 2, but not on Server 1: EnableIE7Launch - 0x00000000 (0) MystStdInstall - 0x00000001 (1) RealCfgDll - "UNIDRVUI.DLL" Any ideas from these values?

Using the same client to connect to both servers sees the same behavior I mentioned above.

comment Print spooler issue
Thank you for the detailed response. However, both servers have the PCL 5e driver installed and both have the same font settings. Also, the server performs the printing, not the clients -- so that takes the client out of the equation.
