Description Thomas M Steenholdt 2004-10-10 23:57:57 UTC
Having configured samba for serving printer drivers to XP clients, i'm using the
properties dialog from an XP client (as the printer admin user) to install the
needed driver in the samba print$ share.

This doesn't work however;

Windows errors out with :

   Unable to install Lexmark Optra R Series PS, Windows 2000 or XP, Intel
driver. Operation could not be completed.

Samba log the following message in the client log :

   [2004/10/11 07:46:48, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection(800)
      client_pc ( couldn't find service

Searching for the problem on google yields quite a few hits but no real solution
(that i have come across). Searching om samba bugzilla yields nothing, so here
we are :-)
