Share a printer with Home Server 2011 ?

    I have upgrade my home server to 2011 and now the printer don't print anymore. I can see the printer on the network, I can install the printer but when I try to print the test page, I've got a message that said "The test page could not be printed". Then I started the wizard to solve the problem and of course, that didn't work.

    Any idea ?

    Hmm, sounds odd. The printer driver model didn't change from NT6 to NT6.1, but it could be a driver issue.

    How did you upgrade? Did you do an upgrade installation or install Windows from scratch? If it's the former then I'm afraid that's a risk of an upgrade-install.

    Is there anything in the Event Log?

    I have install the server from scratch. The printer is a samsung ml 2510 and I have install the win7 driver and I can print from the server. I have install the print server role and after that I have share the printer from the network and sharing center.
