I have a problem setting up shared printers in samba4, I used the manual in


- I added a printer using cups
- I added the printer en printer driver share as written in the wiki
- I logged on as samba 4 administrator on a windows 7 client
- I tried to add the printer

On windows I get "acces denied" on the samba4 server in 
/var/log/samab4/log/smbd I get:

Add printer for printer Ricoh Aficio MP 4000 PCL6 called and no smb.conf parameter "addprinter command" is defined. This parameter must exist for this call to succeed

I thought the addprinter command was not available anymore for samba4?

The server is a CentOS release 6.3
sama version: samba4-4.0.1
