I'm pretty new to the whole server thing and am using some VM's at home to mess around. Essentially I have installed a printer which is connected into my router and has a static IP. I've installed the printer on my 2008 R2 (64bit) VM and created a script to install the printer for my XP and Windows 7 Client VM's (32bit) - but they can't install because there is no driver!
So I understand I need to use the Additional drivers option under the Sharing tab on the Printer. Do I add the 2008 R2 32bit driver? Do I add the Windows 7 32bit driver? Since I have XP and 7 I don't know which x86 driver to add?
Strangely - and maybe this is case - I have downloaded a printer driver for 2008R2 64 bit - and extracted it - added a printer using the 64 driver on my server VM, then added the additional driver for my 32bit version - and still my XP and 7 Clients can use the driver? Do the Server drivers (2003 and 2008) contain all OS' drivers or does it not matter which OS platform you get for the driver, just any 32bit driver will do?
