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




Hai Mard ans Tomas, 

Just out of interest and maybe this helps also for bug 12761.

Are you still able to test this on a VM? Can you try my samba 4.6.8 package. 

That one contains a patch for printer driver problems. This bug report.
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12761  ( reported my Marc itself. ) 
Its more about the 32bit driver upload and delete of drivers, but who knows, i suggest try it. 
Because i dont see this beheavior on my print server with the 4.6.8 package.

My setup is same as yours, i use RSAT in win7 64b for RSAT tools. 
Debian stretch, samba 4.6.8. cups in Point and print setup with kerberos auth configured. 
This server started as debian jessie with samba 4.2.x. has seen 4.5.8 on stretch and now 4.6.8.

I only noticed on thing, as you if a new printer is added, it takes some time, but a refesh after about 2-4 sec, 
in the printer manager view, shows the printer and i can configure it. 

My apt info : http://apt.van-belle.nl
For Stretch: (4.6.x)
 echo "deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian stretch-backports main contrib non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list
 echo "deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian stretch main contrib non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list

Now import the public key with :
 wget -O - http://apt.van-belle.nl/louis-van-belle.gpg-key.asc | apt-key add -
And update and run dist-upgrade since samba 4.6 has some extra packages to be installed. 
Make a good backup or /var/lib/samba and /var/cache/samba and /etc/samba 
That, if needed gives the options to revert back to the debian packages.

Any domain admin, on any windows ( domain joined) pc, can configure the printer as show above.
