[Samba] Printer drivers installation: files are not deleted

Hi Laurent, 

i cant imagine it is a permission problem. 
The driver upload runs as root and i added root 

Also i added root with 
net rpc rights grant "cake\domadm" SePrintOperatorPrivilege -U cake/root 

replaced cake with my domain-name. 

Also i find a driver which i can upload 
HP Color Laserjet 2800 (PS) from Windows XP 32 
But if Using a driver from Utax (or the appropriate Version from Kyocera) i get the permission error. 

Using a fresh installed Windows for printer driver extraction is imho no long term solution ;) 

best regards

I think thatś most probably a permission issue on the server. Does the 
user you connect with have printer administrator privilege? Ie, member 
of the printadm group or similar?

I followed the documentation on that: I install them on a clean test 
system (win7 x64), then extract the list of files and the files 
themselves using rpcclient. That part works.
