Print Server 2000 & 2003 MP State View Does Not Work

There are a host of issues with the Print Server 200 & 2003 MP. Especially the Monitoring views. I have created my own views however for the state view that does not display the Print servers correctly I created a view using  data relating MOM2005 Backward compatibility Windows Computer and Targeted to the Microsoft Windows 2003 Print Server Computer Group which works fine. We had no Print Server 2000 servers so no need to set up. I recommend however Authoring your own MP for Print Server 2000 and 2003 and use the official one only for Print Server 2008.
