  • 1. Print Queue Users
    Hi, I have about 300 print queues on a Window 2000 server. How could I find out who has a mapping to each print queue? Thanks, -- Michelle
  • 2. Printer driver was not installed. Access is denied.
    This is a Windows 2000 Server. I have installed printers on it many times, but for some reason it will not let me install any printers now. Any time that I try to install a printer, I get "Add Printer Wizard" "Printer Driver Was Not Installed. Access is denied." The server is a sole domain controller for a domain. I am logged on as Administrator. The OS is on a FAT32 Partition. The whole partition has "Everyone" privileges. No events are generated in Event viewer. This occurs any time I try to install any printer, with downloaded drivers AND/OR bundled drivers. Its driving me nuts and I have tried everything that I can think of... Tyson
  • 3. Generic / Text Only print driver problem
    Hello folks, I am trying to connfigure the Windows Generic / Text only printer driver to print a document. When I print the document, any blank lines within the text are removed. So the following text: "This is a test This is a test" will come out : "This is a test This is a test" Any idea as to why this might be? I am using the RAW print driver. Thank you much! Jason

Migration from NT 4 to W2k print server

Postby Rodney Barnhardt » Sat, 19 Jul 2003 08:13:46 GMT

We recently replace our NT 4 print server with a W2K 
server. We migrate the printers to the new server and when 
we activated the server it was given the same name and IP 
address of the old one. We now have about 15 machine out 
of 200 that when they try to print to the printers that 
were previously installed they get the following error:
"Function address 0x77fcb7ae caused a protection fault"
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printers, hacked 
them out of the registry, and reinstalled them. I still 
get the error. It is occurring on both NT 4 and W2K 
workstations. I have had some luck on the W2K boxes 
hacking them out of the registry, but no luck on the NT 4

1.W2K Network, Print Server W2K, W2K Clients can print but W95 and W98 clients can't

I have a W2K print server that was working fine before.  I was working
in the Domain GPO's and now my 95/98 clients can't find the printer
any longer.  The server shows up when you go to install the network
printer but it states that they can't connect to the printer.  I can
do the same install procedure with a W2K client and everything works
fine, if a little slow.  I have put all the GPO's back to fresh
install backups of the gp*.inf files, incremented the gp.ini file and
the event viewer shows that the updates were published.

Any idea's as to why this is happening?

3.NT to W2k upgrade/migration questions

We currently have 1 NT4.0 PDC and 2 BDC's. We also have 2 Windows 2000
member servers in addition to 2 other NT4.0 member servers.

We currently run WINS but aren't running DNS or DHCP. My plan is
to take one of the BDC's offline. I'm going to demote the PDC
to  a BCD because it's the BDC machine that we want to upgrade and become
the new DC.

But before we do this I believe that I should set up a DNS server. I was
thinking of using one of the existing W2k servers for that. Will that
work, or should I install DNS on one of the NT servers that won't be
upgraded right away? Any other considerations I should have?

Do we HAVE to use DHCP?

TIA for any/all replies!


4.NT 4.0 to W2k 2003 Migration/DHCP question

We're in the process of getting ready to migrate our NT 4.0 domain to Windows 
2003. I've got a new 2003 domain with a two way trust established with the NT 
domain. Can I migrate the NT 4.0 DHCP database to the 2003 server? Will the 
NT 4.0 domain clients who HAVE NOT been migrated be able to acquire a DHCP 
address from the 2003 domain/DHCP server?


5.migration prolems from NT 4.0 to W2k

We currently have a NT 4.0 domain(Domain A), we are planning to migrate the 
whole NT 4.0 domain to the Win2K AD domain(Domain B).

Since Domain B is already existed in the Headquarter, so we only need to 
install a Win2K server and then installed AD and add this server as one of 
member DC of the Domian B.

after all the these were done, then we migrate the users account from the NT 
4.0 to Win2K server step by step. it works fine after a few users migrate to 

But, sometimes we met a few very weird things. when the connection between 
Headquarter and our site was broke, that's to say, the our new Win2K server 
cannot communicate with the other DCs in Headquarter, then the users 
migrated to the domain B cannot access the resouces in the NT domain.

Since the 2 domain had already set the trust and trusted relationship. and 
one of the DC are located in my site, so I take it for granted that the 2 
domain still can access the resouces from each other.

any advice is appriciated in advance.

Best Regards
