I have a network of 70 Macs. Some are 10.4 but most are 10.5. In the last week some of the Macs have asked for the admin username and password to print to a network printer that they have been printing to for the last year. Any ideas?

Note - they only ask once then they can print. This has happened in the past. Is there some policy that makes you re-enter the admin info for security? The password did not change.

Thanks in advance.
