  1. Module 5: Implementing Printing

  2. Overview • Introduction to Printing in the Windows Server 2003 Family • Installing and Sharing Printers • Managing Access to Printers Using Shared Printer Permissions • Managing Printer Drivers • Implementing Printer Locations

  3. Lesson: Introduction to Printing in the Windows Server 2003 Family • Multimedia: Printing Terminology • Types of Clients That Can Print to Servers Running Windows Server 2003 • How Printing Works in a Windows Server 2003 Environment

  4. Multimedia: Printing Terminology This activity defines the components of the printing process and provides an overview of the printing process

  5. Types of Clients That Can Print to Servers Running Windows Server 2003 • Microsoft clients • NetWare clients • Macintosh clients • UNIX clients • Clients that supports IPP 1.0

  6. Network Print Client 1 Print Server Router Print Server Service 2 Application 4 Print Driver GDI Local Print Provider 5 Spooler 6 Print Processor Remote Print Provider 7 Separator Page Processor 3 Local Print Provider 8 Print Device 9 How Printing Works in a Windows Server 2003 Environment

  7. Lesson: Installing and Sharing Printers • What Is a Local Printer and a Network Printer? • Hardware Requirements for Configuring a Print Server • How to Install and Share a Local Printer • How to Install and Share a Network Printer

  8. Local printers: Network printers: Print Server Print Server TCP/IP or IPX or AppleTalk LPT or USB or IR Print Device Print Device Print Device What Is a Local Printer and a Network Printer?

  9. Hardware Requirements for Configuring a Print Server • A print server running one of the operating systems in the Windows Server 2003 family • Sufficient RAM to process documents • Sufficient disk space on the print server to store documents until they print

  10. How to Install and Share a Local Printer Your instructor will demonstrate how to install and share a local printer

  11. How to Install and Share a Network Printer Your instructor will demonstrate how to install and share a network printer

  12. Practice: Installing and Sharing Printers In this practice, you will install and share a local printer and a network printer

  13. Lesson: Managing Access to Printers Using Shared Printer Permissions • What Are Shared Printer Permissions? • Why Modify Shared Printer Permissions? • How to Manage Access to Printers

  14. What Are Shared Printer Permissions?

  15. Why Modify Shared Printer Permissions? • Limit access to a printer for selected users • Example: Give all nonadministrative users in a department a low-level permission and give all managers a higher-level permission. This enables both users and managers to print documents, but managers can change the print status of any document sent to the printer. • Deny access to a printer for selected users • Example: Give selected members of a group the ability to print documents, and deny other group members access to the printer to force them to use another printer.

  16. Your instructor will demonstrate how to manage access to printers How to Manage Access to Printers

  17. Practice: Managing Access to Printers Using Shared Printer Permissions In this practice, you will: • Set printer permissions that enable one group to manage printer documents • Set printer permissions that give one group printer operator permissions

  18. Lesson: Managing Printer Drivers • What Is a Printer Driver? • How to Install Printer Drivers • How to Add Printer Drivers for Other Client Operating Systems

  19. What Is a Printer Driver? • Software that computer programs use to communicate with printers and plotters • Translates the information you send from the computer into commands that the printer understands • Consists of the following types of files:

  20. How to Install Printer Drivers

  21. How to Add Printer Drivers for Other Client Operating Systems

  22. Practice: Managing Printer Drivers In this practice, you will install printer drivers

  23. Lesson: Implementing Printer Locations • What Are Printer Locations? • Requirements for Implementing Printer Locations • Naming Conventions for Printer Locations • How Printer Locations Are Configured • How to Set the Location of Printers • How to Locate Printers

  24. What Are Printer Locations? • Printer locations enable users to search and connect to print devices that they are in close physical proximity to • In Active Directory, an IP subnet is represented by a subnet object, which contains a Location attribute that is used during a search for printers • Active Directory uses the value of the Location attribute as the text string to display printer location

  25. Requirements for Implementing Printer Locations • An Active Directory network configured with at least one site and two or more IP subnets • An IP addressing scheme that corresponds to the geographical and physical layout of your network • A subnet object for each site • Client computers that can search Active Directory

  26. Naming Conventions for Printer Locations • Multimedia presentation: Defining Location Names Rules for creating a naming convention for printer locations: • Location names are in the form Name/Name/Name/Name/... (The slash mark (/) must be the dividing character) • A name can consist of any characters except for the slash mark (/) • The maximum number of levels in a name is 256 • The maximum length of Name is 32 characters • The maximum length of an entire location name is 260 characters

  27. Tasks That Systems Engineers Perform • Enable printer location tracking by using Group Policy • Create a subnet object in Active Directory • Set the Location attribute for the subnet object Task That Systems Administrators Perform Set the Location attribute for the printer How Printer Locations Are Configured

  28. How to Set the Location of Printers Setting the location of printers is a three-step procedure: • Determine the IP address of the printer • Determine the subnet location • Set the Location attribute of the printer

  29. How to Locate Printers Select a printer option Select the appropriate option for specifying a printer name

  30. Practice: Implementing Printer Locations In this practice, you will implement printer locations

  31. Lab A: Implementing Printing In this lab, you will: • Install printers • Set printer locations
