Listing printers in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) makes it easier for users to locate and install printers. After you install printers on a printer server, you can use Print Management to list them in AD DS.
You can list more than one printer simultaneously. You may want to set up a filter to show all of the printers that you want to list or remove, so that you can easily select all of the printers at the same time.
|To list or remove printers in AD DS|
Open Print Management.
In the left pane, click Print Servers, click the applicable print server, and then click Printers.
In the center pane, right-click the printer that you want to list or remove, and then click either List in Directory or Remove from Directory.
- To open Print Management, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Print Management.
- You must have Administrative permissions to perform this task.
