Printer CNAMEs broken again!

Problem:

When connecting to a printer on print server names printserver01.domain.com through the cname printers.domain.com, I’d get “Operation could not be completed.” When connecting to the printer through the FQDN specified by the A record (printers01.domain.com) things worked fine.

Resolution:

On the server, run the following command:
netdom computername printeres01 /add printers.domain.com

  2. What i don’t realize is in fact how you’re no longer actually much
    more smartly-favored than you may be now. You’re so intelligent.

    You recognize thus significantly on the subject of this matter,
    made me for my part believe it from a lot of
    various angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be involved unless it’s
    something to do with Lady gaga! Your individual stuffs outstanding.
    All the time handle it up!
