Thanks Geoff for getting back to me.
I believe my add printer command is working because net rpc migrate
printer commands work fine when run on the samba server. And when I add
a printer using the APW from windows it works.

No I didn't. :-( I had no issues at all using the add/remove printer
scripts that are in the example docs. So I could add and remove printers
from a windows workstation without problems. Make sure that you read
through the scripts before use. You can figure out from them where
spaces in names are allowed and where they aren't.

Well no such spooler exist AFAIK. I was hoping jerry could spread some
enlightenment but he never came back to this thread. I haven't had time
to do an ethereal trace on this lately due to server crashes (bad

Jerry reckons that you only need a working add printer command. Have
you tested adding a printer by itself, and not using the print migrator?
I just assumed that I must be doing something wrong. So I gave up and
did each printer manually.
