Description Iván Couto 2005-02-02 05:04:37 UTC
I have set up a samba server in a Solaris 9 sparc host to become a file and 
printer server of my corporate network. Linux clients (debian sarge) use 
smbclient commands to print, get queues status and cancel jobs on the server. 
I have detected 2 major problems: 
1) When I get connected to the printer share via smbclient and I execute the 
"queue" command, the queue status is reported but jobid starts at 1,2...N 
With the same smbclient connection, if I type "queue" again jobids are the 
reported the first time*256! (job 1--->256, job 2--->512,...). This "feature" 
keep working on followins "queue" command.  If I want to cancel a job, I have 
to use the jobids reported the first time (1,2..) instead the jobid*256 
reported after the second queue query. 
2) With samba version 3.0.5 I'm able to cancel a job without problems, but 
with newer versions (3.0.6-3.0.9) the cancel command doesn't work at all!!.  
It just shows "job xx cancelled" but it doesn't really work as version 3.0.5.
