How to change printer IP address under Azure

Eyash 21 Reputation points

Our company requires Azure, and this is how my laptop is configured. We are working from home because of Covid. When installing Canon MF644cdw printer, I get message "insufficient privileges" - apparently the Azure admin privileges are not sufficient. So, I download the driver, do "Add printer", and eventually printer gets installed (but it appears to me under the control of MS IPP Class Driver rather than Canon driver. When I changed the router at home and set the new SSID/password at the printer, my other, personally owned, Window computer at home (non-Azure) immediately recognized it, and I could print without problem. But the computer with Azure still shows the address as, which corresponds to the old router, and attempt to print leads to error. Is there a way to change this so it corresponds to the new router? At some point, I tried to type into the Location field in the Properties (this would match then new IP address) - but this did not work. Our support people say: just delete / reinstall the printer. I would rather avoid doing this, since I could be changing routers again. What is the correct way?

    @Eyash Not sure about configuration part in your environment but you can make use of Azure Universal Print Services or Windows Server Hybrid Cloud Print.

    Universal Print is a modern print solution that organizations can use to manage their print infrastructure through cloud services from Microsoft. It is now free to try during public preview!

    Universal Print runs entirely on Microsoft Azure. When it's deployed with Universal Print–compatible printers, it doesn't require any on-premises infrastructure.

    You can refer to this article for more information around deployment part.

    On other hand Windows Server Hybrid Cloud Print layers on top of existing Windows Server(s) running as Print Server, and enables Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) joined, and MDM managed, devices to discover and print to organization managed printers..

    More information here.

    Based on your solution you can check configuration part and configure it accordingly.

    Hope it helps.
