Description Jens Enßen 2007-02-08 05:43:22 UTC

I have cups configured with:
printing=cups and printcap=cups
In CUPS, I have set the "Location" field in the cups printer configuration.

It is very useful to set the printer location as per

Unfortunately, Samba does not appear to be copying the cups printer location
into AD when "net ads printer publish myprinter" is issued. The location field
is not shown.

"net ads printer search" does show the printer location field for Windows
printers which have it set.


We need this function to search printer in the active directory!
It would be nice if you can give me a short statement?

This bug is based on bugzilla bug 2277!!!

Thanks in advanced
