I have the following trouble with samba 2.0.5a, I have defined my
printers as follows:

in the global section:

   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   load printers = yes
   printing = lprng
   print command =/usr/bin/lpr  -U%m -P%p -r %s;echo %m
   lpq command   =       /usr/bin/lpq  -U%m -P%p
   lprm command  =       /usr/bin/lprm -U%m -P%p %j
   lppause command =     /usr/sbin/lpc -U%m hold %p %j
   lpresume command =    /usr/sbin/lpc -U%m release %p %j
   queuepause command =  /usr/sbin/lpc -U%m -P%p stop
   queueresume command = /usr/sbin/lpc -U%m -P%p start  

And then in printers section:
   comment = All Printers
   path = /var/spool/samba
   browseable = no
   guest ok = yes
   writable = no
   printable = yes   

Printing works OK, but I don't get any messages in the printlog file and
lprng task is not marked as comming from machine %m, it looks as samba
is using the default "print command" value.

testparam shows the previous line as expected from the smb.conf.

I need a method to identify the machine where the print job is

Any suggestions?
