  1. Losing unc in printer local port since KB556846 on server 2012?


    Anyone having same issue?

    Printer is loosing its localport is a unc was assigned. This append when spooler service is restarted.



    Affected Localspl.dll is April 29th version is 6.3.9600.19701


    If we replace to Feb. 9th version 6.3.9600.19293 everything is back to normal.

    I have also been aware of the same issue in Windows 10

    :)

    printer won't work on network but will over usb

    his printer has a built-in print server.

    What you need to know what ip is being give to the printer. Perhaps you can print a status sheet from the printer.

    Then Go to printers in control panel

    add a new printer

    local printer attached, uncheck automatically detect and install PnP printer

    create a new port, select standard tcp/ip port

    a new window should open and enter the ip there where it says printer name or IP address (port name then should be also be filled as you go)

    and pretty much follow the rest of the steps, you will need to install the printer drivers.


    These steps is the easy, but not the right way.

    The right way is to use the network option on the initial screw and search for the printer server...but that can be tricky to configure.

    Server 2012

    IF you want to try seizing the FSMO roles to see if it will help, here is a quick guide (this should be done on the DC you want to keep):

    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com...ation-master-roles-in-windows-server-2012-r2/

    Knowing that this is a DC now I'm really convinced that something is wrong with the AD account for this particular server. It's possible that the promotion to a DC didn't work correctly leaving you with a sort of broken DC.

    A reboot is always worth a shot; has that been tried Ahhzz? If it has, then the next step would be to demote this DC and rejoin it to the domain. Once rejoined you can run DCPromo again. Microsoft best practice is to have at least 2 DCs for redundancy.
