Printer has been setup, shared and confirmed as working.

Using the following guide:

1) I have granted print operator privileges to "Domain Admins"

user at jupiter:~$ net rpc rights list accounts -U'ABC\administrator'
Enter INCRED\administrator's password:
BUILTIN\Print Operators
No privileges assigned

BUILTIN\Account Operators
No privileges assigned

BUILTIN\Backup Operators
No privileges assigned

BUILTIN\Server Operators
No privileges assigned

ABC\Domain Admins


No privileges assigned

user at jupiter:~$

When creating the [print$] share

2) I have created the share in smb.conf and it can be seen in Windows:

       path = /srv/samba/Printer_drivers/
       comment = Printer drivers
       writeable = yes

3) I have created the physical folder (default permissions as per guide):

user at jupiter:~$ ls -l /srv/samba
total 12
drwxrwxr-x 2 root domain admins 4096 Nov 22 21:38 Demo
drwxrwxr-x 2 root domain admins 4096 Nov 15 11:51 Finance
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root          4096 Nov 24 06:00 Printer_drivers
user at jupiter:~$

3) When I try to set the permissions of the share using Windows ACLs I am
given a permission denied error:
"An error occurred whilst applying security information to:
Access is denied"
