[Samba] Urgent Help Please

Hi All,

We have been running Samba (3.0.2), CUPS on SUSE 9 Pro for some time now with no problems. This morning however it all seems to have gone wrong, and the users on site can no longer print. When a user prints a document nothing comes out on the printer and further investigation in the Windows printers folder reveals the printers are sat with 'x' amount of jobs on them and constantly refreshing, opening the print queue on the users window machine reveals no jobs in the queue at all.

I have tried all the usual, restarting the daemons and rebooting the machine, I even considered a removal and reinstall of Samba, the system logs show that the SMBD is having a panic each time a user tries to print or view the print queues.

Does anyone have any suggestions how I can resolve this issue? We migrated this box from Windows due to stability problems, and I really don't want to have to go back to Windows for my print server.

Many Thanks In Advance
