Are you using 'use client driver' and 'disable spoolss'
parameters? How they are configured? What testparm tells you
Take a look at the manpage of smb.conf about these two
parameters, on our network we use both enabled and it solves
the problem with 'access denied' printers.

At what page? CUPS page?
If you are speaking about CUPS it won't work that way,
it will give the drivers to the clients but it won't install
the drivers on the CUPS server.
