Publishing printers from another forest

Assuming that a trust is established between sites then create an OU in AD and then extract printers from the other forest into AD using pubprn.vbs

In my server 2016 environment for some reason the last letter of the servername is missing and breaks the print object.  Using ADSIEDIT.MSC it can be fixed just edit the servername and shortservername attributes of each printer object.  Also the comments and location attributes can be updated in this way if required.



Network Capture on Server Core

Rather than installing 3rd party tools that may or may not work with server core this is built into most recent Windows Server operating systems.

netsh trace start persistent=yes capture=yes tracefile=c:\temp\trace.etl
netsh trace stop

The .etl can be examined using Microsoft Network Monitor or Microsoft Message Analyser
