Startingpoint is samba2_2 CVS from 19.12.2000
I read the PRINTER_DRIVER2.TXT, created the share print$ with is sub
We then created a printer HPLJ8000DN_1_2 on our linuxbox and his share in
Samba is also PDC.
When i am right we can use the NT add printer wizard to upload the
printerdrivers in samba.
Untill now it doesn't work.
When we want to add the printer with the NT APW, this is what we get.
In the NT APW
select network print server
whe see the printer
LIN\\LIN\HPLJ8000DN_1_2 NO DRIVER AVAILABLE FOR THIS PRINTER (seems right)
When we select the printer
"The server on which the printer resides does not have a suitable NO DRIVER
AVAILABLE FOR THIS PRINTER printer driver installed. Click on OK if you wish
to install the driver on your local machine"
we than have
"File Needed : Printer driver INF for NO DRIVER AVAILABLE FOR TH"
"the file '*.INF on (unknown) is needed"
"Type the path where the file is located and click ok"
"Copy files from"
I select hp8000ps
so I get in the window
Here after we get the message
"Printer driver setup error. the printer driver is unknown"
Yes I am logged in as root.
What can be the problem, or better how can we resolve the upload problem.
Is there more to do than there is explained in PRINTER_DRIVER2.TXT
