The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 2298
smbclient queue issues printing to a 3.0.9 samba printer
Last modified: 2005-02-03 07:41:27 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.
