Unable to browse/add NDPS printers once in Active Directory

We're just beginning to migrate an organization's PCs into Active Directory, with the PC's using existing Novell client to intiate hybrid/combined login into both NDS and Active Directory. The PCs have the Novell Client and NDPS installed.

Once have changed a PC from workgroup to Active Directory domain, the Add Printer "Browse for Printer" dialog no longer provides the ability to browse and select NDPS printers, but does provide the ability to browse and select Active Directory printers. My impression is that it is actually a different dialog.

NDPS printers already present on such a PC continue to work. I haven't tested yet to see if pushing printer via RPM still works on such a PC.

QUESTION - In this circumstance, is there still a way to do manual browsing for and adds of NDPS printers? Via a tweak, launching the old version of the dialog, ??????????

Thanks.

What client version are you using? Older client versions had a bug where
browsing for NDPS printers would not work under certain circumstatnces. If
you use the latest client (4.91SP5), the bug should not exist.

Was on 4.91SP4. Tried 4.91SP5. Same problem. Only the Microsoft domain and printers being presented for browsing.

I'm wondering if there are separate Microsoft and Novell "add printer" software modules..... If so, would be interesting to know if the Novell one could be launched manually via means other than "add printer" in Printers folder.
