I am trying to migrate print queues from a windows server to a samba
1. I ran printmig.exe on the windows server. 
2. Backed up the printers on the windows servers to a cab file.
3. Tries to restore the printers to the sambashare by specifying the
target as //sambaShare.
But I get the following error: 
2006:01:25 15:35:38   Access Granted to: \\sambaShare
2006:01:25 15:35:38   Couldn't start the target spooler
2006:01:25 15:35:38   Remote Tree View Failed
How do I starter the target spooler?
Do I need some config in smb.conf?
In smb.conf I have a addprinter command.

Subject: guest account security = domain doesn't work...

my security is domain, i would like to map users who fail authentication
to be
mapped to a guest account so they can access printers.

My conf file looks like this:
        workgroup = LAB2000DOMAIN2
        security = DOMAIN
        client schannel = No
        map to guest = Bad Password
        password server =
        log level = 4 passdb:5 auth:10 winbind:4
        log file = /local/local1/errorlog/samba.log
        max log size = 50
        smb ports = 50139
        lpq cache time = 0
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        printcap name = cups
        preferred master = No
        local master = No
        domain master = No
        dns proxy = No
        wins server =
        idmap uid = 70000-200000
        idmap gid = 70000-200000
        template homedir = /local/local1/
        template shell = /admin-shell
        winbind cache time = 10
        winbind use default domain = Yes
        printer admin = @cupsAdmin
        cups options = "raw"
        force printername = Yes

        path = /state/samba/printers
        write list = @cupsAdmin
        force user = root
        force group = root
        guest ok = Yes

        comment = All Printers
        path = /local/local1/spool/samba
        guest ok = Yes
        printable = Yes
        browseable = No
But this does not work.
Any ideas?
Would greatly apreciate your help.
