The below procedure takes into consideration that you have already performed the following steps:
|1.||Obtain a driver package, i.e., Lexmark Universal PCL XL driver.|
Expand the package to the c:\Lexmark\Drivers\univPCLXL folder.
Tip: If the package you download attempts to automatically install the driver, you should cancel that installation since it will install the driver on the local system, and not the cluster print server.
In the Printers and Faxes folder on \\PrintCluster, double-click Add Printer.
Create a port for the new print object. Enter the printer's IP Address. (Note: Click image below to enlarge it.)
When prompted to install a driver, choose Have Disk and enter the path to the downloaded .INF.
For example, \Lexmark\Drivers\univPCLXL\drivers\print\win_2kxp.
The driver is now installed on the virtual printer server.
Procedure: Next, Setup Print Client (Windows XP/LabManager Example)
To print to the configured printer in the above procedure.
|1.||In LabManager browser window, choose the machine Client.|
||The console for Client will appear. Press the Ctrl-Alt-Del button at the top of the machine and log in.|
|3.|| Change the DNS entries for the machine. The primary domain controller should be the primary DNS server for this scenario.
Join the domain you’ve already created.
|5.||Now establish a connection to the shared printer on the virtual print server by choosing Start > Run and enter the UNC path to the virtual print server, which is \\PrintCluster.|
The folder will open and you’ll see a shared printer. It is using the default share name of LexmarkU. Right-click that entry and choose Connect… Wait for the OS to complete installation and then close the PrintCluster folder.
Choose Start > Printers and Faxes. You will see an entry for the newly-installed printer. Print a job to verify that the cluster print server is working.
