Ok, last night I was able to do some work after the
trolls, er, users went home.
1) printer admin= is set in the [global] section.
2) restarted samba. Same problem.
3) stopped samba. got rid of all printing related tdb
files. started samba. made no other changes. was able
to add drivers to the print$ share.
All this was done remotely, so I couldn't verify
that the printers were actually printing, so I
came in a little early and saw that they were.
So, I'm guessing I had another corrupt tdb file,
probably from screwing around so much trying to get
the slow-print issue fixed. (In case anyone missed
that, my vendor issued a new driver for their printer
that sped up printing. It's still a little slow,
but it's much, much better than it was.)
Now if I can just fix the "printer on x.x.x.x" instead
of "printer on <servername>" problem. But that's cosmetic
and I don't care at this point. 3.0.8 will probably fix
it anyway. :)
Thanks, everyone, for your help.
