we are trying to set printer properties with the prnadmin.dll from the
windows 2000 resource kit.

The printers are shared by a samba 2.2.8a, spoolingsystem is Cups. We are
using the windows drivers to process the job, the queues are set as
raw-queues on cups.

For some models[1] setting the properties via a dumped file works without

For some other printermodels[2] it doesn't work, the properties are not
on the samba-server. If we set the propertiess once by hand the script works
and samba is storing the properties from the dumped file correctly.

Any ideas where to look at to get it work with every model?

1: Lexmark Optra S1855 and T614
2: HP Laserjet 4100 and HP Laserjet 4050
