As suggested by Franz Pfoertsch...
Samba currently attaches far fewer attributes to Printer objects published in Active Directory than those published by Windows.
Attributes such as colormode, duplex, papersize, etc. should be added.
These attributes can all be obtained via the info2->devmode structure in nt_printer_info_to_mods(), it should just be a matter of finding the correct attribute strings.
Looking through the MS-RPRN and MS-AD3 documentation, it appears the relationship between published printer AD attributes the device-mode data is far from 1:1.
Printer device-mode data mostly corresponds to the current printer settings, whereas many AD attributes corresponds to feature support or limits.
