We have a newly started server(Sun-Fire-T200) running samba.
 From one day to another samba printing just stopped working. We have 
found out following:

When forwarding printing to another server through printers.conf it works.
When printing from dos through the command: echo ^MHello^L > 
\\servername\printer it also works.
When right clicking on the printer choosing "Print test print" it does 
not work.
When using smbclient to print from the server it also works.
Whenever we create a printer with the original name it just dosn't work.

Any idears?
