Question Is there a report that can show me all of my Network Printers?
Answer There is currently not a specific report to show only Network Printers. There is a sample report attached to this article that shows some of the basic information that the Network Discovery captures.
When you run a Network Discovery, in order to create a collection or report using the devices found in the discovery, you will need to click the "Enable" button when you run the discovery. What this does is to change the discovered device from just an item in a list to a resource that can be managed by the Notification Server. For example, if you enable one of the Network Printers, you can go to the "Resource Tab > Resource Management > Collections > Network Device Collections" and under "All Network Devices" collection you will see the Network Printers that were enabled.
With this option you can create your reports using these Network Printer's collections. Also, if you double-click on the Network Printer under that collection, you will be able to see the Resource Manager and all the data associated to that device. You can use this information to create your own custom reports because the table names that you need for finding the information will be listed.
