[Samba] Permissions in printer share

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to migrate my print server to Samba. All is working well 
except security. In my domain, some groups are able to print to certain 
printers and others to other printers. I tried with "write list = 
@group" but it doesn't worked. How do I configure the permissions on 
samba's printers, for a user group can print to only certain printers?

Here is my smb.conf file:

workgroup = MYDOMAIN
server string = Samba Server
security = DOMAIN
password server = PASS1 PASS2
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 50
idmap uid = 15000-20000
idmap gid = 15000-20000
template homedir = /homes/%D/%U
template shell = /sbin/nologin
winbind separator = +
winbind enum users = Yes
winbind enum groups = Yes
hosts allow = 127., 192.168.23.
cups options = raw

comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
printable = Yes
browseable = No

comment = HP LaserJet P3015
path = /var/spool/samba/rcprnhpp3015
write list = @group1
printable = Yes

Thanks in advance
