Description tRew 2013-04-08 11:31:02 UTC
I recently installed cups and samba to be able to replace a windows printserver and to my surprise the printers wont show up in the "Add Printer" wizard in windows 7. It turns out that the command "net -U xxx ads printer publish yyy" doesnt write the attribute "printShareName" on the printer object in Active Directory.

There are a few other attributes which windows print server printers have but samba print server printers dont. These does not seem to have any impact on the problem.

Did i do this wrong or is there some configuration option i missed? (i know this is not a support forum but i had to ask).
