In CentOS 6, this was just a matter in a checkbox "Show printers shared by other systems" on the CUPS Admin page. Is this function still available somehow? Manually adding all the shared printers on every client would be painful.

Yes, that's how I'm getting to the CUPS Admin page, which is lacking the option to use printers that the print server is sharing.

Yes, and other systems make use of its shared printers just fine. It's the CentOS 8 CUPS client that doesn't offer to use shared printers.  Does CUPS 2.x perhaps have some hidden setting to operate as a client vs. as a server?  I've never had to configure that before.
