    Hi guys,
    We have about 50 PCs on our network and I want to set up a print server. Does anyone see anything wrong with setting up one of the DC's as a print server as well? Approx 30 of those PCs are in student labs, so not all of them are being used at the same time. So definitely no where near 50 people printing and logging on at the same time.

    Whatcha think??

    Technically there is nothing wrong with it as long as you take into account that it can use a lot of disk space (depends on where the main spooling occurs, but even queues use HD space) and of course that all this traffic can really slow the DC down.....
