I'm not sure if I understand this. Did you took the server out of the 
domain and temporary downgrade it to a standalone server for granting 
the privilege?

Can you make sure, that the privilege was granted to a _domain account_?
# net rpc rights list accounts -Uadministrator

I haven't had this case yet. Just some questions that may help us to 
find the cause of your problem:

- Do you connect to to the server as the user you granted the 
SePrintOperator permissions to?

- Is the user you granted the permission to is a domain account?

- The account you use to associate the driver with a printer is the same 
than the one you used for uploading the drivers?

- Did the driver upload wizzard runs fine? Or any errors or untypical 

- Can you associate the driver on *nix side by using 'rpcclient'? (see 

- Is the combobox still empty, if you use a domain admin account (grant 
the privilege to first)?
