Hi all. I'm building a new print server and am using Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit Standard. The clients that will be printing to the queues I'll create are Windows 7 32-bit clients. The Xerox devices are all multifunction printers/faxes/scanners/copiers and some are color and others are black and white. You know how when you're putting in your information for filtering purposes and you can choose an operating system? Which operating system am I supposed to put in there? The server or the client operating system? If you say the server operating system, just to be clear, the 32-bit Windows 7 clients would be fine using the driver downloaded for Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit, right?
the os doesnt mather, its the same driver for every os :)
offcourse it mathers if 32 and 64 bit is selected, you have to install the correct driver on your server and then add the addiotional driver if need for your clients
Okay, so the clients will all be 32-bit Windows 7. Does that mean I should download the 32-bit global driver or the 64-bit global driver since the server OS is 64-bit? I'm guessing the 32-bit but would like to know what you think.
Thanks Fabio. I'm really not trying to be difficult. I'm just trying to understand. So here's my next question - If none of the clients that will be printing to this print server are 64-bit OS's why would I install the 64-bit server OS driver package? Does it contain the 32-bit drivers for the Windows 7 clients?
