Hello, I have a FreeBSD 4.5-RELEASE box running the SAMBA 2.2.4_1 port. I
have successfully added a printer driver to the unit, and when connecting
from a Windows 2000 client, I get the driver successfully installed. I then
converted the system to a PDC and added a test machine to it's domain. I can
connect to the printer, it downloads drivers, but when I choose printer
properties, I get:

"Printer properties cannot be displayed. Operation could not be completed"

Oddly enough, when this SAMBA unit was a domain member, in a hybrid W2K/NT
domain, I could get the printer properties.

I can get the "server properties" correctly, and access shares, save
