Hi all,  
I'm trying to add printers with cupsaddsmb on Samba 3.0.20 (Mandrake Linux)  
with an LDAP backend. I've followed the howto on the samba page and have the  
generated when I run it. So far I've Googled for the solution but nothing  
listed has helped. The full set of errors are as follows:  
Cupsaddsmb returns:  
[root at h2lptserver etc]# cupsaddsmb -H SMB1 -h localhost -U BGS\\root  -v -a  
Password for BGS\root required to access SMB1 via SAMBA:  
Running command: rpcclient SMB1 -N -U'BGS\root%xxxxxx' -c 'setdriver  
HPCLaJet2550 HPCLaJet2550'  
rpcclient enumprinters returns:  
[root at h2lptserver etc]# rpcclient -N -Uroot%xxxxxx -c enumprinters localhost
