The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 7377
Windows 7 control-panel -> Printers and Faxes Hang
Last modified: 2011-09-27 15:27:32 UTC
Users are not able to view available Printers from Control-Panel (Printers and Faxes)
- 32bit Windows 7 Enterprise
- member of a Samba 3.4.5 Samba-PDC
I've deactivated printing:
load printers = No
printing = cups
disable spollss = Yes
show add printer wizard = No
Created attachment 5641 [details]
What a user sees when he/she tries to see the available printers
The attachment shows the green progress bar atop the 'Printers and Faxes' window that seems to be searching forever without finding available peripherals listing.
This problem is only present for a Samba-PDC user... If I logon as a local machine user I do not get this problem.
Can you please provide a network caputure while this is happening ?

Requested network capture
Here you go... I captured the network traffic using Wireshark while I made several attempts at seeing 'printers and peripherals'...
I read your bugreport and it seems to me this is not a hang!
the Control-Panel does not work as expected.
you have to click on "The printer that I want isn't listed"
But there is a other problem, published printers are not visible.
Only published printers from Windowsprintserver are displays.
It seems there the windowsprintserver has pushed some additional properties pushed into the AD
