Seagull License Server Names Printer Differently In Windows 8.1 Follow
I have a 20 license server. With our companies transition to Windows 8.1 Pro in a Microsoft Domain environment I have a problem.
My Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 Pro workstations create a differently named printer verses My Windows 8.1 Pro workstations.
This results in the Seagull License Server assigning two licenses for one printer. I am in a very bad situation due to running out of licenses.
Seagull License Server names the printer from Windows XP and Windows 7 as
the same printers from a Windows 8.1 Pro workstation are named the following
The Printers are all setup as shared network printers from a Windows Server 2008 R2 Print Server. Each client workstation installs a label printer from that Print Server. The name is fixed and is not something that can be edited from the Windows side. The Windows side shows the same printer name regardless of Windows Operating System.
The two Active Directory Domain controllers are running Server 2012; soon to be 2012 R2.
I am running 10.0 SR1 build 2845.
What do I do to make the license server correctly name a printer?
