Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 19620
bug with new connections in samba (Printing)
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:27 EDT
There seems to be a bug with expiring connections.
The settings are the following:
1. Samba server on Linux computer which is connected to a printer.
2. Linux client with a printer configured as SMB printer which prints via
server from item 1.
The problem is:
When after few days of idle client something is printed from the client
(item 2) it
does not go through. The printed page just disappeares, nothing is printed
Then, if I print the same page once again it successfully gets printed.
All futher prints are OK also.
Seems that after long idle work (2-3 days) of a client (item 2)
first print job printed from it just disappeares. All further prints are
Still a problem with the latest errata?
I am not sure what what is causing this problem.
In samba-2.0.8-1.7 (updates from RedHat 7.0)
I did not have this problem since Fri 18 May 2001.
I do not know for sure whether the problem was fixed in samba-2.0.8-1.7 or not.
In samba 2.0.7 I had this problem twice in 6 months period.
Reopen if you can reproduce it, with as much reproduction info as possible.
