Error "_spoolss_AddPrinterDriverEx: level 8 not yet implemented" when attempting to upload drivers on samba
Last modified: 2015-01-22 17:34:40 UTC
From a Vista Home basic sp2 when I want to install a printer driver to Samba server it start copying files and stop without any popup on the client.
Here is a part of my Syslog

Thanks for you help.
Ok, in case the windows clients attempts level 8 add (and fails) it will fallback to level 6 add.
Are you seeing just this warning in the logs or is the addition of drivers actually failing ?
It's just when I want to install printer driver from Vista to samba and it appears in the syslog.
After that when I try to install the printer from samba to the Vista client I receive this error popup "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Impossible to terminate this operation (error 0x000006f7)" translated from french ;o).
Ah, ok, is this with 3.4.3 ?
It should be resolved with 3.4.4, can you please give the new samba release a try ?
Lowering severity as we are waiting for feedback from the reporter and it should be fixed 3.4.4 and newer.
I'm seeing this issue on 3.5.6.

Looks like the same on Windows 7 with Samba-Version 4.1.6-5.1-3213-SUSE-oS13.1-x86_64:

Bug still exists (HP and Brother drivers) in 2:4.1.6+dfsg-1ubuntu2.14.04.3 installing from Windows x64 (unsure of x32); however, driver installation still seems to succeed and corresponding printer association seems to work.
