2.3.2 Directory Service Schema Elements

Print servers access the directory service (DS) schema classes and attributes that are listed in this section. For the syntactic definitions of the <Class> and <Class> <Attribute> pairs, see [MS-ADSC] and [MS-ADA3].

  • The print server uses the printQueue Active Directory schema class ([MS-ADSC] section 2.225) to publish a print queue.

  • When creating a print queue object in the Active Directory, the print server specifies the following mandatory attributes of the printQueue Active Directory schema object:

    Class

    Attribute

    printQueue

    versionNumber ([MS-ADA3] section 2.362)

    uNCName ([MS-ADA3] section 2.331)

    shortServerName ([MS-ADA3] section 2.264)

    serverName ([MS-ADA3] section 2.241)

    printerName ([MS-ADA3] section 2.130)
