I'm running Samba 2.2.3a on Redhat 7.2. My problem is that after adding
a new printer via cups and restarting the cups daemon, the printer
doesn't appear for browsing on Windows clients.
Here are the printing parts of my smb.conf:
printing = cups
printcap name = lpstat
I have tried sending smbd the -HUP to have it re-read the config file.
This seems to work OK for introducing new shares into a server which is
in use, but it doesn't work for printers. Newly added printers only
appear after restarting samba, which is sub-optimal in a production
environment. Any thoughts?
