I have a network printer that users connect to via a Windows Server 2012 machine. The printer went bad and we are having it replaced with the exact same model. It will also be using the exact same IP address.
Would this be a plug and play since everything will be the same as before, or will I need to create a new print share on the server and re-install the printer on each users machine? I searched around but did not find many conclusive answers regarding replacing a printer with the same exact model.
The new printers came in which were the exact same model. All I had to do was make sure the IP addresses were the same and printing worked without me needing to reinstall or reconfigure anything on the server or client computers.
