Ok here is the fix I found

Apparently there are many places to "set" this in the printer but there is
only one place that windows actually uses that information.

Right mouse click on the printer
Go to properties
Go to the Advance tab
Click on Printing Defaults button
Go to Paper/Quality tab
Select your source(tray) and media type
Click Apply

This will fix the 2k Clients so that they pull the appropriate settings

Strangely enough found this information in a book called "The Official
Samba-3 Howto and Reference Guide".

Just tried the 4100PS driver on a test printer.  Similar result except this
time instead of pulling from Tray 1 Manual it is set to Automatically
Select.

If I go to Printer>Properties>Device Settings on the Print server I can turn
off tray 1 so that tray 2 is only available option.  This will then flow to
the attaching print clients.
But if I go to the Printer>Printing Preferences>Paper/Quality on the print
server and set tray 2 as the source the attaching clients will not pull this
setting down.

First off we found that the 4100 driver for the 4000s and 4050s work
better and are compatible.
Second what are your servers; Win2k sp4 with Me fr3 sp3?

I have multiple HP LaserJet 4000 series printers.  They all use
postscript drivers because the ERP system only prints in PS through
windows clients. Mixture of NT4 and 2K clients and 2K Citrix servers and
a Windows 2k server where all the print queues are located.

On the 4000 printers there are multiple trays.  Each tray has its own
print queue on the print server.  Such as Tray 2 is plain paper, tray 3
is letterhead, tray 4 is legal size paper.  Each printer on the print
server is set to only use its tray.  Such as printer called
accounting-plain will go to tray 2.

This works perfectly with the NT4 clients.  Unfortunately on the 2k
clients and servers I always get tray 1 manual feed.  This baffles me
because I thought all the settings from the server were suppose to flow
down to the clients that attach to the printer.  Prints from the print
server work right (go to the right trays) any 2K client that connects
get the wrong tray.

Anyone seen this before or have a solution to the problem?  It is
driving me nuts.
