Description Megan Fender 2004-07-14 08:15:00 UTC
If a user sends a print job that exceeds the available Samba spool space:
For example:  A user sends a 200M job and /var/spool/samba only has 100M free.

1) Windows spools and sends off 100M of the job and then abruptly stops with no
error message regarding the incomplete print job

2) On the server, Samba leaves the partially spooled print job in
/var/spool/samba /smbprn.*

Tried to attach log level 10 from AIX Server detailing spool filling, but too
large.  Available upon request.
