Description John Holmstadt 2010-01-28 16:14:39 UTC
Most of the time, I can't get the "New Driver" button to display in the Advanced tab. However, once in a great while, given the right circumstances, I can get it to be active. This worked fine in Samba 3.2, but now that I've upgraded to 3.4, it's difficult to get a point-n-print driver installed.

Steps to reproduce:
- Open \\smbtest\
- View remote printers (Printers and Faxes)
- Right-click the printer, and select Properties
- Answer "No" to install driver
- Go to Advanced tab
- "New Driver" button is grey

Then sometimes, this works...
- Close the printer properties window
- Open \\172.16.1.197 (the IP of "smbtest" server)
- View remote printers (Printers and Faxes)
- Right-click the printer, and select Properties
- Answer "No" to install driver
- Go to Advanced tab
- "New Driver" button is active

Then, just like that, it's gone again...
- Close the printer properties window
- Right-click the printer, and select Properties
- Answer "No" to install driver
- Go to Advanced tab
- "New Driver" button is grey again


I will attach the log file for each of these 3 stages.

I suppose I should also give some detail on my system:
kernel 2.6.31.12-174.2.3.fc12.x86_64
smbstatus -V: Version 3.4.5-53.fc12

Is the user that is connecting to that box member of BUILTIN\Administrators ?

Also, "printer admin = root, "@Domain Admins, @Print", Operators" has a weird format.

Can you please upload a log level 10 logfile of a non working case ?

Might be related to bug #7255 ("printer admin" parameter does not work as expected).

Does it work properly when you are "root" or the user has the SePrintOperatorPrivilege assigned?
