How to assess printer compatibility with W2008R2 ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I need to assess a hundred printer servers to find if the attached printer is compatible with W2008R2 for migration purpose. I tried to get this info from MAP without sucess.

    Is there any other way other than manually going to http://www.windowsservercatalog.com/ and search for each printer?

  • MAP doesn't have any reports on installed printers, sorry.

  • Hi Jay

     

    I will leave that as an important suggestion to MAP development team to include in the next version, as many comapnies are migrating to W2008 R2 and need to assess the printers.

    For now, I am using the solution you gave me:

    "One solution would be to get the distinct list of printer types from this table & then go work with the vendors to see if they have drivers:  select distinct driver_name from printers"

     Thanks
