Subject: [suse-linux-uk-schools] Suse Samba & drivers
Greetings to you all, hope you are all well as this
mailing list has gone deathly quiet! I shall soon wake
it up though with my next question. Its probably more
a Samba mail list Q, but its the version Suse 8.0 came
Basically i have an almost running samba/cups setup in
an RM 2.4 network, which has all the schools printers
shared and so forth. I've generated the printer
definition files for samba, places the wanted files in
a linux folder and given it the print$ share. What i
want it to do is for the workstation to logon and
hookup with the printer and get all the files it needs
without user interaction.
Now as i said earlier it has all the files it needs on
the samba share - i even shipped over every single
file from what NT shares for giving out these printer
drivers and so forth, *BUT* no matter what i do, once
i've assigned a printer connection it always goes to
the PDC 'server1' share to get its files, at which
point it gives an 'access denied' in the details for
the first file it attempts to shift off the NT server.
Looking at the permissions on the nt box for the
driver folder its setup for administrator and 'setup
user'. I guess i could add 'all users' with read only
access to the share but would this be rather risky? NT
doesn't slap anything threatening to security in there
do they? It is currently running Print Services on
both servers that share out the printers - would
disabling this cause it to go to the samba share?
I *am* using the 'obselete' driver-location type
commands to set this up - i had a snip at the current
method and it just boggled me mind.
Any suggestions are welcome!
