The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 4610
Printer status on vista
Last modified: 2012-01-09 11:04:53 UTC
Im facing a problem with vista. When I download a driver in vista the
printer status is getting changed from ready to driver update needed
if I click some of tabs in the installed driver. When I posted a
query in Microsoft forum they replied that if some of the fields such
as time,date, etc are different on server and client then the status
changes from ready to driver update needed. My doubt is the
driver file that are on server and client are same but still the
vista is considering there is some thing different and changing the
status to driver update needed. Do you have any idea bout vista
sending any sort of update requests to server in order to sink some
of the parameters on server and client. more over this kind of problem occurs when we upgrade XP to vista.
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!
