Hi guys,

Our printer server has been up for the past 2 years and we haven't had one problem.

I'm running samba 2.2.7 with lprng.

I wanted to make the printer installation on windoz 2000 boxes easier by putting the printer drivers on the server and using the [print$] share.

I had it all working nicely and u could just click on a printer on the print sever and it would install along with the drivers.
However when another user logs on to the same machine they do not see the printer. We are using profiles here, and my first thought was it could be saving it in my profile. However if I or another one of my collegues logon (Domain Admins) they can see the printer but no one else can (normal users).

Any suggestions???
