Description Patrick McLean 2006-10-04 15:00:20 UTC
When I try to add a printer on a Windows XP machine via Start->Run and typing \\server\printer I get a long windows error message ending in "Incorrect Function". Adding the printer from "Printers and Faxes" works fine.

Will attach smb.conf and a loglevel=10 logs of the problem occuring.

This is samba 3.0.23c on a Gentoo Linux machine compiled with gcc 4.1.1.
Comment 5 Volker Lendecke 2006-10-06 07:22:59 UTC
Please set 'max log size = 0' for this test. The client log file has been truncated, the interesting parts have been cut off.

The new log is 18MB, bugzilla won't let me upload a file of that size, so I posted it at:

Any other information needed for this?
Comment 8 Andreas Schneider 2012-01-09 10:57:53 UTC
This is probably fixed with a newer Samba version. If you still see the error. Please open a new bug with 'debug level = 10' logfiles of the new Samba version 3.5 or 3.6. Thanks!
