[Samba] Printers Sharing

Im running samba4.0.3.

I added a new printer named "HP" via CUPS administration interface.

I can see the printer as shared and I can print also, but what calls my attention is that on debugging information I keep getting the following

winreg_create_printer: Skipping, SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Printers\HP already exists

Below is my smb.conf parts:

	comment = All Printers
	path = /usr/local/samba/var/spool
	browseable = Yes
	read only = No
	printable = Yes
	comment = Point and Print Printer Drivers
	path = /usr/local/samba/var/print
	browseable = yes
	read only = yes
	guest ok = yes

Is this "already exists" message normal?

Thanks and regards,
