(yes, I know it's an old version of Samba but I *really* don't want to
mess about upgrading right now)
The server in question (SuSE Enterprise Linux 9) got itself in a tizz
last night and was restarted cleanly via the shutdown -r command this
morning. Everything comes back up, including Samba, and all is fine.
Except that no-one can print.
Nothing has changed in any of the configuration files. tdbbackup
reports that all the tdb files are intact.
Printing from the cups web interface ('Print Test Page') works fine.
Printing when logged on as 'administrator' works fine. Printing as a
Joe-Blow user fails miserably.
I'm getting the following error message in the logs:
[2006/01/26 08:48:58, 0] printing/print_cups.c:cups_queue_get(903)
Unable to get jobs for ipp://localhost/printers/IT_Office -
I'm also seeing a number of:
process_request_pdu: failed to do schannel processing
This thing is kicking my hindquarters, and as it's the central
logon/print server for a not-small educational establishment the
pressure is on to get it sorted.
I've doubled-checked all the configuration files, scanned the tdb files
with tdbbackup, restarted the smbd process after clearing out the
volatile tdbs, and googled my little heart out.
