Fixed In Version: samba3x-3.6.22-0.1.el5
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
When the smbd server daemon executed spooling for a print action, it previously did not include the job ID in the generated spool-file path. As a consequence, the spool check could not validate the spool-file's existence, and the printing thus failed. With this update, smbd includes jobid in the spool-file path and parsing the file name succeeds. As a result, printing via Samba now works as expected.
