Re: [Samba] RSAT Print Management won't show shared printers under the "Printers" section




Hi Marc,

thank you for your quick reply. Here are my results so far:

> Does this also happen on Win 8.1 or 10? Please try, if you did not already.
It actually works like it should on Windows 8.1. I can manage the printers here like I should be able to from Windows 7.
But, even after configuration from Windows 8.1, it doesn't appear on Windows 7. Yet, Windows 7 is my target platform.
Couldn't check Windows 10 as it refused to cooperate with me today. Was always stuck on updates and the RSAT link is broken, given up on that.

> Do the clients have all available updates applied?
Yup.

> Can you temporarily try it without spoolssd (remove the two lines).
I had it running the longest times without those lines and it didn't work. Taking them out or putting them in unfortunately doesn't change a thing.

> Can you try it with the following [printers] section:
Tried it, but still doesn't work.

> Can you disable automatic printer sharing and manually share
> one of the printers?
I've shared one of the printers manually. While it works great (shown in Explorer, shown in the "Ports" section of Print Management), I can still not see the printer in the "Printers" section of Print Management.

What I forgot to include yesterday was a log on level 3 of what I was seeing on the printserver when I refresh the "Printers" section in Print Management (on Windows 7), here it is:
