Samba 2.2.2 on Solaris 8, Windows 2000.

To test, I have installed about 50 network printers, printing via samba.
It works fine and users can control there own printjobs, however......
Whenever I open e.g. Start>settings>printers or try to print using an
the machine asks (samba uses lpstat %p) the status of all these printers.
The machine also does this frequently to refresh its cache.
This causes my server to generate numerous of in.lpd processes.
If more than 400 machines do that, it would be deadly.

Is there a way to disable this behavior.

Regards, Derk.
