Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 853012
Printing backend is initialized before the winreg pipe is set up.
Last modified: 2013-01-07 22:35:46 EST
Description of problem:
The printing backend is initialized before we setup the winreg pipe. This means that printing database migration from 3.5 or earlier to 3.6 fails.
We already have a patch which has been tested by Samba customers and confirmed to be working.
THIS IS CRITCAL FOR US!
Always with Samba 3.6.6.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Samba 3.5.x
2. Create a printer so that you have nt printing databases in /var/lib/samba
3. Stop Samba
4. Install Samba 3.6
5. Start Samba (the printers should automatically be migrated from the nt printing
database to the samba registry)
