Fog Printer Model not in ntprint.inf

  • I have a HP LaserJet P2015 Series PCL 5e printer that I need to push to a lot of hosts. Everything seems to be running smoothly, except that the printer’s aren’t being pushed to the hosts.

    The printer in question isn’t in c:\windows\inf\ntprint.inf and instead is located in c:\cab\HP LJP2015 PCL5

    So I moved hppcp504.inf to the samba server thinking I could reference this in ntprint.inf’s place but the service isn’t pushing the printer.

    I can ping the server, the firewalls are set up for file and printer sharing, and as far as I now FOG is configured properly. Any ideas?

    [CODE]Printer Model: HP LaserJet P2015 Series PCL 5e
    Printer Alias: Upper
    Printer Port: IP_10.0.0.11
    Print INF File: \\Guest Share\HP LJP2015 PCL5\hppcp504.inf
    Print IP (optional):[/CODE]

  • Okay, I think I might know where the problem lies. When I try to run cupsaddsmb to add the printer drivers to the Samba I get a “[I]NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL” [/I]error. I’m not sure where to go from here though. [I][/I]

  • I don’t know if this will help, but here are my config files.

    For now cups allows anyone to do any changes. I need it like this for now and will lock it down later.

    I also read that Model has to be the same as the INF file. I’m not entirely sure how to check that though.

  • Thank you for the response. Yes, the share is readable by everyone on all computers.

    I can go into the share and also see all the printers and add them one by one to all the computers, but that is very time consuming.

    When I try to install a printer manually, though it gives me a [QUOTE]The server for the printer does not have the correct printer driver installed[/QUOTE] error.

    Is the share readable by everyone? I don’t think the FOG service, running as the local system account is going to be able to access the share any other way.
