To be fair, I was merely explaining how the default rationale for
printer searching was supposed to work.

As to AD and LDAP - what issues did you have with searching?

FWIW, when first deploying Windows 2000 / AD, here, I designed the
printer mapping rationale around PC (ie physical) location, and finding
(from AD, using LDAP) the physical printers that matched that physical
PC location.
