We are using samba version 2.2.1a and we are uploading the drivers by
means of rpcclient.
The problem is printing is not happening with some set of drivers.We
have observered is
After downloading the drivers and when print request is given,drivers
are looking for PrinterDriverData and DevMode information.Some of the
PrinterDriverData registry entries are
SPLUserModeDriver,PrinterData,DeviceInfo,FontSubs etc.
While uploading the drivers by means of rpcclient,device mode
information and PrinterDriverData information( PrinterDriverData is
maintained as NT_PRINTER_PARAM member in structure
NT_PRINTER_INFO_LEVEL_2) are not given. ie these information are not
stored in ntdrivers.tdb.
How to fetch DevMode and PrinterDriverData information and store it onto
ntdrivers.tdb?Would like to know more information on this.
Thank you,
