connecting xerox docuprint as a shared printer on Ubuntu server 16.04


I'm trying to do away with my current server running Microsoft SBS 2003. I know that this server OS is no longer supported by Microsoft. And this is one of the main reasons I want to decommission it as our File Server.

I'm thinking of running Ubuntu Server 16.04 32bit without the GUI as an alternative file server to Microsoft Server 2012 Essential.

I'm planning to set up this Ubuntu Server as an Active Directory server and a DHCP Server. All of my client machines run on Windows 10.

I suppose what's challenging to me is to integrate my current networked printer - Xerox DocuPrint C3300DX (which currently works flawlessly with my Server SBS 2003) with the Ubuntu Server. I'm hoping if anyone might be kind to give me enlightenment on this.

Thank you very much in advance.

Well, since this machine has network connectivity (based on the specs I read for this model), why not attach it direct to the LAN, then all machines can reach it independently, without need to use a PC as a server for printing. It is possible to connect it (via USB) to your Linux server, then share it as a CUPS printer, but Windows machines will need to use IPP printing support.
