We have an older printer in our environment that needs to utilize the HP LaserJet iiiSI driver. I was able to migrate it successfully from our Windows 2000 server to a Windows 7 PC. However when I then migrate it from there to a clustered Windows 2008 server it will not map the print queue. It DOES, however, add the driver to the Drivers list. When I go to add the printer manually I cannot see it in the drop down however.
Does anyone know how I can fix this? Thanks!

I'd like to confirm the OS is Windows 7(x86) or Windows 7(x64).
Please try to download the printer driver to test:
Hewlett Packard LaserJet IIISi Printer Drivers
Please refer the following checklist to verify the configuration set correctly:
Checklist: Create a Clustered Print Server
In addition, there is a blog for your reference:
Windows Print Cluster Best Practices for Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008 R2
Hope this helps!

Elytis, thanks for the reply!
It is Windows 7 x86 and I am using the migration tool on that to go to a clustered Windows 2008 R2 x64 environment (which I manage by the Printer snap-in).
I looked at the link for the IIISi drivers, but it appears it's actually an application called Driver Tool, not the drivers.
The clustered print server is running well otherwise with other printers and drivers.

May I suggest using the HP Universal Print Driver?
