  • 3. Adding a new printer to Win 2000 Adv Server
    I purchased a Canon i900D printer for our Win 2000 Adv Server, and the install process fails. The driver installs, then the computer tries to detect the USB port the printer is connected to... and fails. I tried this process on one of our Win XP Pro machines, and it worked fine... detected, and printer worked fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  • 4. Print properties too small!!!!!
    Hi, One of our users has been unable to view all of the printer properties on his PC. The properties window is too small to display all of the tabs and I have not been able to find a way to expand the window. Does anyone have any idea where such settings may exist? There must be a registry setting which dictates printer properties window size! Thanks, Ryan
  • 5. Custom printer icons
    I was looking for a way to import custom printer icons. I can create the icon just fine, problem is I don't know how to swap it with normal icon windows sets up. Not sure if this is form to ask, maybe registry is place. Any ideas would help! Thanks

Printermigration WNT -> W2k

Hello newsgroup

i want to migrate some printers from an Windows NT4 Domain in to a Active Directory Domain. To save time i want to have a tool or something that could read out the settings of the printers in the Windows NT4 Domain printserver (e.g. Paper Size, Paper Tray, Color Scheme) and put it into the settings of the AD Domain printserver.
If this not possible or too risky, because the drivers of NT4 and W2k (the printer will be the same, we just migrate the ports and queues) are too different, do you know a tool that just can read out the settings in depth from the NT4 Server

1.W2K>>trust>>NT4=failed to authenticate

I am seeing event IDs 3210 (Failed to authenticate with X 
domain), 5719 (No DC available for X domain), and 5783 (DC 
for X domain is not responsive) on my W2K DCs after 
setting up a trust with an NT 4 domain for access to an 
application on the NT 4 domain.  These two domains are in 
different forests.  From any of my DCs I can browse to the 
share on the remote NT 4 domain and the application works. 
After researching this, I started thinking the password 
for the trust was out of synch but surely the trust 
wouldn't keep working if that were true.  I know, I know: 
if it works, what's the problem?  I plan on establishing 
several other trusts with the other forest and a forest to 
forest trust is not possible politically.  

Any ideas or avenues for further research appreciated.

On my computer there is a file called index.dat which is 
uses by IE so when i try to delete it it says that you 
can't. I know that i can delete it if i go into DOS but 
if i do delete it what would happen?

Yhe reason i want to delete is that i read somewhere that 
i has all your browsing history in it. Could you also 
tell me what the file is used for. if that is not what it 
is used for.
