I use samba 4.9.5 on a buster .  For manage printers i use cups .
I want to use this printers on my windows client -

I configured my smb.conf as :


load printers = yes
printing = cups
printcap name = cups
disable spoolss = no

comment = all printers
browseable =yes
printable = yes
guest ok =yes
use client driver = yes


comment = printers drivers
read only = yes
browseable = yes
guest ok =no

When I execute samba  I have the following error :

reloading printcap cache
reload status :ok
adding printer service bureau_115_hp_4200
/usr/sbin/smbd: pid_to_procid: messaging_dgm_get_unique failed: Aucun 
fichier ou dossier de ce type
/usr/sbin/smbd: send_all_fn: messaging_send_buf to 16162 failed: 

I have make few tests :

When disable spoolss = no -- > the error disappears but i need it  to 
use windows printers .

on my file /etc/cups/printers.conf --> my printer are well defined -

I probably forgot something in the configuration in my smb.conf

thanks for your help
