I would upgrade to 2.2.5 before doing anything else. They've made it more
stable in that release, it seems, and it may solve your problem. Also,
there's a (important) patch to install on top of that:


As for your problem, please clarify what you mean by "fail to succeed". You
need to distinguish whether it's a general permissions problem or a problem
with only uploading/setting drivers.

Example : use smbstatus to see if you're "really" logged in as root (i.e.
mapped to root)

  I'm having difficulty configuring Printing with Samba 2.2.4 and Windows
2000 clients. 
  The samba installations is running as a PDC against LDAP. All the
sharing of network file systems seem to be working perfectly..
 I have a share
        path = /usr/spool/samba
        guest ok = yes
        printable = yes
        browsable = no
        guest ok = yes
        writable = no
        printer admin = root
        public = yes
and another
        browsable = no
        printable = yes
        path = /export/software/printers
        guest ok = yes
        browseable = yes
        read only = yes
        write list = Administrator,root
Within my local printcap I have a printer which appears to the Network.
However When I come to login as the user root and run the Add Printer
Wizard, I fail to suceed in adding the printer drivers to the Network.
	Any ideas what is happening ?
