Look at /var/spool/samba and see if the job gets transferred there.
Use print command = echo "tried to print %s" > /tmp/signal
and see what is in signal.
Look in the samba logs.
Can you print %s from the local host (server)?
Usually, this disappearing act is due to a bad driver, IMHO.
BTW, I do not know anything about cups. It seems like most people with
problems these days with samba printing are using cups.
