Heh, cool, this is exactly what I have now... however, everytime I
reload the samba servers from the /etc/init.d/samba method, they
invariably come up showing //printserver with only 2 objects - not the
normal 505. They lose their minds somehow.
However, I notice that if I use the SWAT method (manually from a
browser) I can 'restart all' on the services and everything works as
expected. So, I'm not sure what's up here, but I'd sure like to have
what I've got work. Any idea what's up with my way of restarting.
btw, I realize I need to sync the ntprinters.tdb, the drivers.tdb, and
all the various printers.tdb, right. Also need to sync the cups
printers.conf file first - reload cups, and then reload samba. If cups
is down, samba shows no printers. So, it seems I'm screwing up
somewhere in there. That's why I'm going down the road of clusterfs, etc.
Can you be a little more specific on how to restart samba via script
such that it's how swat does it, or more the "correct" way?
