Setup Windows Print Services on FAS2020

ThomasBebee

Hi,

Is the correct way to provide Windows print file services for a FAS2020, to attach a Windows server and do the print services from that Windows server?

Also, if access to the FAS2020 is iSCSI only, is there any other software needed?

Thank you.

Tom

Hi Tom,

Do you mean print or file services?

The former these days is typically addressed by a network-attached printer. If not, then you need a Windows box with print spooler service running on it & directly-attached printer.

The latter can be delivered either directly out of a NetApp filer if CIFS licence is enabled. If that's not the case, then again, you need a Windows server which will use some LUNs created on NetApp box (connected via iSCSI) & present / share this storage to Windows clients via CIFS.

Regards,
Radek

Thank you Radek.

I did mean "print" services and you answered the question that I had.
