Description TAKAHASHI Motonobu 2009-05-16 10:38:54 UTC
"add printer" command is executed when uploading driver via APW 

When we upload a printer driver as desribed:  
  http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/classicalprinting.html#id2624181
 * Associate an uploaded driver with an existing (but still driverless) print queue. 

 add printer command is executed.
In the document says:
-----
When using the APW from a client, if the named printer share does not exist, smbd will execute the add printer command.
-----

But regardless of existing the printer share, add printer command is executed.

I checked this behavior at Samba 3.3.4 (and Samba 3.0.7 several years ago).

Günther, what's the right thing here:
Updating the documentation or running the command only if the printer share does not exist?
