Today I learned something interesting while updating/migrating printers from our old server (Server 2003) to our new print server ( Server 2008 R2). When HP says Universal Print Driver they mean it!
In our district we have about 10-15 Dell Laser 1710/1720 printers. I was having a really tough time finding a driver that supported XP/Windows 7 for our new server. After a few days of trying every driver on the planet from dells website and contacting dell support I figured I would try HPs UPD. Who would of thought, it worked! I loaded upthe HP Universal Printing PCL 5 driver for all our 1700 series and and it worked flawless. They have been up for over 3 weeks in our school district and yet to have a hiccup.
The 1700s are the only printer I’ve tried the UPD on. If you know of others let me know below!
