Are there are issues with using the U (Berkely LPD) method on Windows 2008?

Hi

We are planning on moving our SAP printers from where they are currently (a number of Wintel printer servers on different sites, some of which will be Windows 2000 servers, Windows NT and others) to a centralised Windows 2008 printer server.

We are using method 'U' for all of these printers, i.e. Berkley/SAPLPD.

Does this still work okay on Windows 2008 printer servers / are there any known issues?

We DON'T want to use the S method /sprint (for reasons I won't go into here).

Thanks!

Ross

Not sure if I'm supposed to keep 'bumping' this, I'm just very surprised I've had no replies?

Hi,

No you're not supposed to keep 'bumping' !

I just think that most people use the C method (Direct Call) on Windows systems...

Mmm, haven't come across method 'C' before, better check that out...

However - answered the question yesterday, a Windows 2008 server is now available with printer queues and we have successfully printing using method 'U' - great

We're thinking that installing SAPSprint though on the servers and using method 'S' might be the better way to go, believe this is the preferred SAP option.

Cheers
