Setting Standards When Printer Location Tracking is Disabled
Updated: March 1, 2003
Applies To: Windows Server 2003 with SP1
As mentioned previously, you can add information to Location in the General tab of the printer property page even if printer location tracking is disabled. However, this imposes a potential problem. When users search for printers on the tenth floor, they need to know exactly what to type in the Find Printers property page when they click Start, then Search, and then For Printers. Incidentally, wildcards such as * (asterisk) may be used to help find printers when exact or complete location names are unknown. When printer location tracking is enabled, the Location field in the Find printer property page is filled in automatically.
