I was hoping someone could help me with migrating printers from a WinNT4 print server to a Samba server. I have searched the web for days and haven't found a solution. I am running Slackware 10.1; kernel 2.4.29. I upgraded Samba to 3.0.21c recently and I am using LPR v3.8.28 as my print spooler.

Here is the response from the 'rpc migrate printers' command:

root at roadrunner:/etc>net rpc printer MIGRATE PRINTERS "HPDeskJet600" \
-S Larry -U administrator
Password: xxxxxxx
migrating printer queue for: [\\LARRY\HP DeskJet 600] / [HPDeskJet600]
cannot open printer \\\HPDeskJet600 on server \\ WERR_INVALIE
cannot get printer-info: DOS code 0x0000001a
could not get printer, creating printer.
