One step forward, ??? steps back....
I updated my 2.2.3a to 2.2.4pre yesterday to see if
it would clear up some oddities...not really.
In fact, now there's one that wasn't there before.
I have the following HP printers installed on my
server: HP4Plus, HP4MV, HP570, HP450C. I also have
other printers that use their own executable to
install drivers: Lexmark Optra S 1250, Mita Ci1000,
and Textronix Phaser 550 (Mita/Phaser use the
AdobePS driver supplied by Adobe, v5.2)
Before I install any of them on my Win2k system,
I can view the properties/install drivers of all
Once I install the HP4Plus driver, I can't view
the properties of the HP4Plus, on my system or
the Samba server's list of printers.
I can install any of the other printers on my
system, and still view their properties on my
system or the Samba server.
If I uninstall the HP4Plus from my system,
I can once again see it's properties on the
The drivers used are HP's HP4Plus PCL5e
v220.127.116.11. and v02.12.02.
I stopped Samba, deleted the printing.tdb,
ntprinters.tdb, ntdrivers.tdb. Deleted the
print$ share contents; added the COLOR,
W32X86 and Win40 dir's again. Restarted
Samba, re-installed the drivers. No change
in the HP4Plus behavior.
I've also cleaned out my registry of all
printing links to that server (AFAIK).
Samba 2.2.4pre; 1 May 2002 copy of SAMBA_2_2.
disable spoolss = no
use client driver = no
Any ideas would be welcome! This Samba
box is my backup print server; I'm testing
the Samba/LPRng/OpenBSD updates on it. So far,
it's not ready for prime time...
