The permission problem I got solved.

Like described here 
I enabled 'root' for short and granted the 'SePrintOperator' right to a 
normal account and switched back to security = ads

Now the next problem arises:

I can now upload the win drivers as described in your howto section 
"Uploading printer drivers for Point'n'Print driver installation" 
successfully. I can also see the files in the samba drivers share.

But I can not associate it with a printer! The dropdown on
https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/File:Choose_driver.png is empty!

Any hint what's wrong here? A bug in samba4?

Running the sernet samba4 debian package (sernet-samba 99:4.0.9-6) on 
debian wheezy.
