some of my servers regularly come up with this error, which makes printing 
over samba impossible:

Mar  6 09:06:44 server smbd[4431]: [2007/03/06 09:06:44, 0] 
Mar  6 09:06:44 server smbd[4431]:   
tdb(/var/cache/samba/printing/printer.tdb): rec_read bad magic 0xd9fee666 at 

Searching mailing lists, I just found the "solution" to stop samba, delete the 
tdb file, and restart it.

I am in charge of 25 servers of this kind and would be happy for a 
more "professional" solution to this... :-)

Is there any... ?

Otherwise I guess I will set up a cronjob to remove the file on a nightly 
base... :-| Please tell me there is a better way :-)

best regards,
