hello all.

i apologize if im reposting this problem, but i could not find any 
solution in the archives ;) .

i have upgraded my samba server from 2.0.7 to 2.2.8a, on a SunOs 2.7 .
im having the following problem:
some users cannot access the printer shares.
when i open the start->settings->printers, i get a 
"printer not found on server, unable to connect" .
(clients are win2k)
when another user logs in to the same machine (using terminal services)
she _can_ access these shares.

can someone please help me? im lost.....

p.s. please cc me, im not registered to the list.
thanks again.

here is the relevant smb.conf snippet:
        workgroup = SAMBA_DOMAIN
        security = SERVER
        password server = sapphire
        use rhosts = Yes
        log file = /usr/local/samba/var/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        #disable spoolss does not solve the problem...
        disable spoolss = Yes
        domain logons = Yes
        wins server =
        print command = lp -c -d %p %s; rm %s
        lpq command = lpq -P%p
        lprm command = lprm -P%p %j
        comment = All Printers
        path = /tmp
        read only = No
        create mask = 0700
        guest ok = Yes
        max print jobs = 100000
