The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 2079
No printing share after upgrade to Samba 3.0.9
Last modified: 2004-12-02 10:23:32 UTC
Server with Samba: HP TC4100 (Intel PIII/1400, 2GB RAM) SuSE Linux 9.0
machine on net: Intel P4/1600, Windows 2000 SP4 and all last hotfixes
After upgrade from 3.0.7 to 3.0.9 my network printers are completly not
accessible. I used almost the same smb.conf in several 2.2.x versions, then
I have upgraded to 3.0.7 and after some minor changes everything was good.
But after upgrade to 3.0.9 file shares are O.K. but I cannot access any print
share on my Windows 2000 SP4 machine.
I have used RPM's from ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/projects/samba/3.0/i386/9.0/,
because of SuSE Linux 9.0 on my server.
I also have already tried RPM for SuSE Linux 9.1
(on another machine with 9.1 distribution, which I have for test purposes)
- ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/projects/samba/3.0/i386/9.1/ -
and I have got the same result - with older 3.0.7 I can see print shares and
after upgrade to 3.0.9 I can see only file shares even with default smb.conf .
Because I still have not any packages with Samba 3.0.7 for SuSE Linux 9.0 I had
to return to 2.2.8a version which is native in SuSE 9.0 distribution.
I have no idea about reason for this, if it is mistake of compiling in SuSE or
bug in Samba 3.0.9 but I would like to use Samba3 with print shares.
(Sorry for my czenglish ...)
What is wrong with this configuration ???

I'm pretty sure this is a duplicate of bug 2091 which has been fixed for the
upcoming 3.0.10pre1 release.
